In this video, Robin catches up with Michael Bewley to hear about the use of AI at Nearmap. Nearmap captures very high resolution aerial imagery and Michael and his team have trained a single segmentation model to identify 78 different target layers in the imagery. These layers can then be displayed on a map or accessed via an API.
