Harnessing Edge AI and Synthetic Data for Landmine Detection


This headline is brought to you by the Center for International Stabilization and Recovery (CISR) which works to support resilience and recovery in global communities affected by war and conflict.

(Forbes) Advancements in AI, semiconductors, and networks are enabling innovative uses of AI for good. In Ukraine, generative AI is enhancing drone-based landmine detection by using synthetic training data, improving accuracy by 20% and reducing false positives. This approach addresses the immense challenge of clearing mines, which could otherwise take centuries.

Synthetic data, created by startups like SyntheticAIdata, offers cost savings and regulatory compliance. Collaboration with Demine Foundation produces realistic images for training AI models, improving safety and efficiency in demining. AI vision and facial recognition are also used to identify deceased soldiers, while robots operate in hazardous environments. Embracing AI for Good initiatives can maximize the positive impact of these technologies.
