Abstract:

This talk will showcase a research project on the use of satellite images to classify the rural-urban status of a survey area/region by the Nielsen Singapore Measurement Science Innovation Lab. We explore the use of computational intelligence and machine learning algorithms from computer science to build a robust classifier from the feature data extracted from the satellite images. The results are derived from a pilot study conducted for the Bali island in Indonesia.
