xView2: AI System Helps Rescue Efforts in Post-Earthquake Turkey

New AI system helps save lives of earthquake victims in Turkey

A system of artificial intelligence called \”xView2\”, which is used to aid in ground rescue efforts, has been deployed by the Turkish government in areas devastated by earthquakes this month.

The U.S. Department of Defense uses a visual computing artificial-intelligence system to help ongoing disaster response efforts for Turkey and Syria after the devastating earthquake that occurred on February 6, which has claimed tens of thousand of lives.
