Here at IPL, Kevin Fisk had limited experience with machine learning and artificial intelligence approaches to data analytics before joining AES. However, after attending a Google Machine Learning class where he learned about digital vision recognition systems, Kevin is using that knowledge to develop a machine learning vision application that digitally sifts through thousands of photos of wind turbines and transmission towers to find signs of damage. This innovation helps asset management teams find cracks, delamination and abrasions and get them remediated before a failure occurs. Check out our video below:
