EOS: New Landslide Reporting Tool Uses Social Media and AI

EOS: New Landslide Reporting Tool Uses Social Media and AI. “The team used machine learning to train the tool to identify landslides in photographs. For this, the geologists independently carried out an assessment of 11,737 images and manually marked each one as landslide or not a landslide. The resulting artificial intelligence tool can detect landslide reports with an accuracy of 76%. The tool is currently up and running and is intended to be used for disaster management, landslide research, climate change analysis, and global and national database studies.”
