Researchers at The Ohio State University (OSU) used artificial intelligence to find unexploded Vietnam War-era bombs in Cambodia.
They used machine learning to analyze a commercial satellite image of a 100-square-kilometer area near Kampong Trabaek in Cambodia, for evidence of bomb craters, and the method has increased true bomb crater detection by more than 160% over standard methods.
The study suggests that about 44% to 50% of the bombs dropped there remain unexploded.
OSU's Erin Lin said, "The process of demining is expensive and time-intensive, but our model can help identify the most vulnerable areas that should be demined first."
