This week in AI & Machine Learning: You can help train a NASA rover, detecting hazardous objects, data annotation for skin cancer, AI-powered drive-thrus, robot firefighters, deep learning accelerates archaeology, and more! 

Authors note:

If you missed my workshop on building your own object detection models and datasets for computer vision you can check out the recording here!

My Top AI Highlight:

You Can Help Train NASA’s Rovers to Better Explore Mars

Members of the public can now help teach an artificial intelligence algorithm to recognize scientific features in images taken by NASA’s Perseverance rover.”

You can help NASA make a more robust machine learning model for future space missions! Just like most supervised computer vision solutions, NASA requires humans to perform data annotations on images to improve accuracy. Learn how you can help on NASA’s official blog.
