KI grad wins AI Challenge

Congratulations to KI alum Jillian Anderson!

She's currently doing a Masters in Big Data at Simon Fraser University, and she and her teammates won the international Open AI Challenge hosted by WeRobotics.

The students developed a model that automatically analyzes aerial imagery of fruit trees to help prioritize the distribution of aid following natural disasters. It was a challenging problem and a very close competition.
