ALaM Project

12 Sep 2022 12:21 PM

Advanced Science and Technology – Automated Labeling Machine (ASTI- ALaM) is the ASTI component of the Philippine Sky Artificial Intelligence Program (SkAI-Pinas). It is the result of the collaboration of DOST-ASTI with the Balik Scientist Program awardee, Dr. Jose Ildefonso U. Rubrico. The (1) capacity-building of DOST-ASTI researchers and engineers to AI-based solutions development using DOST-ASTI COARE, and (2) development of deep learning models are some of the objectives of the project. Through this project, an optimized workflow for developing machine learning and artificial neural network-based models for different application domains will be established. The optimized model development workflow will be supported by dedicated AI technology development hardware to be hosted and managed by DOST-ASTI.


About ALaM Project

The collaboration includes (1) the segmentation of satellite-captured RGB images into several classifications of natural and man-made features (agricultural land, water, buildings, etc.), and (2) the estimation of the structural strength of buildings in satellite-captured images.
