Facebook Makes Population Density Visible By Using AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been gaining momentum by the day thanks to the support it has gained from big tech companies. Facebook is among the companies that have invested a lot of resources in this technology. The company has been experimenting with different ways AI can be deployed to solve human problems. The latest groundbreaking use of AI was seen in a partnership between Facebook and the Center for International Earth Science Information Network. The two companies wanted to get the administrative data for countries the majority of which are on the African continent.  With the use of advanced computer vision and machine learning, Facebook managed to combine satellite imagery with public census data and other data sources to create detailed information on Africa’s population density maps.
