Icebergs are melting quickly.  AI can track them 10,000 times faster than humans

Scientists are turning to artificial intelligence to quickly spot giant icebergs in satellite images with the aim of monitoring their shrinkage over time. Unlike the traditional approach to tracking icebergs, which takes a human a few minutes to outline just one of these structures in an image, the AI ​​accomplished the same task in less than 0.01 second. This is 10,000 times faster.

“It is important to locate icebergs and monitor their extent, to determine how much meltwater they are releasing into the ocean,” said Anne Brackman-Volgeman, lead author of a study on the findings and a scientist at the University of Leeds in the UK. in statement.
