Fog Detection with Deep Learning

Today we started with a Kick-off meeting for a new an exciting Deep Learning research project, a collaborative effort between the University of Iceland, J├╝lich Supercomputing Centre, and the research arm of the Royal Dutch MET office (KNMI).

For the next months our task will be to train fog classifiers based on millions of images captured by hundreds of cameras along the Dutch highways. Differing lighting conditions, fog-categories, movable cameras, and bird-droppings are among the few things we have to take into consideration for our model.
