MOSCOW, January 18. /TASS/. Russia’s Foundation for Advanced Research Projects will design technology for decrypting images from space with the use of artificial intelligence (AI), the foundation’s press service told TASS on Friday.
"As part of a project to create technology for the automatic decoding of aerospace information, technologies are being developed which will make it possible to automatically identify various objects on the Earth’s surface from satellite images, for example aircraft and vehicles, and even determine their type (for example, passenger vehicles or trucks) and in some instances their model (for example, a Kamaz or a ZIL automobile)," the foundation told TASS.
The agency noted that AI technologies would gain popularity in the defense and security industries in the future. Technologies for image recognition, autonomous navigation, human speech processing and forecasting the behavior of complicated systems will be most sought after.
The foundation also reported that a contest for designers of automatic speech synthesis systems was announced in November 2018. The specified technology may replace a human operator in distance learning or keeping the population informed during emergency conditions.
