Search for MH370

马六甲20日讯 专研究人工智能和机械人软件的马六甲马来西亚技术大学(UTeM)副教授吴旺生博士,与他来自马来西亚、约旦及科摩罗的研究生也通过美国卫星图像公司Digital Globe提供的免费高清卫星图像,与其他网民一样在图像上“地毯式搜索”,协助搜寻马航MH370客机的踪迹。 他说,自马航波音777MH370航班从吉隆坡飞往北京失联后,搜索机上239名乘客及机组人员已经进入第13天。 搜索及救援心动过目前涉及26个国家和超过100艘船只、直升机和飞机,这项大规模行动的成本容易就高达数百万美元。 扩大搜索区域 目前搜寻人员正在扩大搜索区域,目前正在朝向两个可能的走廊,即北部走廊,就是从哈萨克和土库曼的边境一直到泰国北部伸展,另外就是南部走廊,南部和走廊从印尼一直延伸到南印度洋,覆盖224万平方海里或768万平方公里。 “许多阴谋论经出现和突然消失,就如有关飞机的转向,几乎连最尖端的技术也无法看到。” 他表示,其中一种搜寻方式就是众包计划,即以所有人的力量,利用卫星图片搜寻MH370班机。 至今全世界有超过300万人经形成一个虚拟搜索队,每天不断的对从来自泰国湾,现在扩展到马六甲海峡、还有印度洋成千上万的卫星图像进行搜寻及分析,希望能寻获MH370班机。 分割不同区块 他说,这种新方法是结合了人类的合作与人工智能,通过CrowdRank技术分析所收集到的线索,让搜索失踪航班MH370的相关信息更准确。 他指出,Tomnod先将卫星图片以网格分割成不同区块,等用户进入Tomnod网站后,网站会给志愿者一个引导,说明海面的浮油、油罐、残骸及飞机,在卫星地图中会呈现为什么图样,然后志愿者就可以在图中做出标记。 他说,此外,志愿者也可以根据自己的判断对其他人的标记结果做出“赞成” 或者“反对”的评价。 而Tomnod的幕后则是对同一区域多个用户的判读结果进行统计分析,从而得出可信度最高的结论。   Source: Nanyang – 21 April 2014     Source: China Press – 21-3-2014     Read More »
