Geomatics Engineering PhD Student presents AI research at Marine Technology Society Webinar
Second year PhD student, Maryam Jameela, was recently invited by the Marine Technology Society to present her research in partnership with Teledyne CARIS. Her online talk was titled: Leveraging AI Technology on The Cloud for The Future of Ocean Mapping for Marine Technology and took place on August 5.
Jameela has been working under the supervision of Dr. Gunho Sohn on removing atmospheric points from point cloud for better understanding and perception of a 3D scene for urban infrastructure management, a subpart of a 3D Mobile Mapping AI research project supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Collaborative Research Development (CRD) program and Toronto-based Lidar instrument manufacturer and developer, Teledyne Optech. This project will develop an advanced data processing system using a deep neural network pipeline, allowing for the autonomous recognition of infrastructure assets, to improve urban sustainability.
The webinar, with over 185 registrations, was centred around one key question: “Why use AI and Automation?” Jameela and her co-presenters discussed the motivation behind the use of artificial intelligence in geospatial applications, the contribution of Augmented Urban Space Modeling and GeoICT Lab at York University, the introduction of a noise filtering tool by Teledyne CARIS and potential areas of research in GeoAI.
The webinar also covered areas including GeoAI, computer vision and applications of AI in a broader geospatial scope. It also provided a brief overview of the research activities of Jameela’s group and her research work in noise filtering.
Overall, the webinar motivated the community of researchers and professionals to collaborate and explore different spectrums and potential research areas of GeoAI.
