Topic of the Challenge:

Arctic Sea – Iceberg Warnings:

Using Satellite images to detect icebergs and separate these from ships and oil/gas installations.  Oil & Gas production in the Barents Sea and other arctic areas is a fact. To protect the environment, one of the gravest dangers must be dealt with:  collision between ships and icebergs. In case of an incident, such collisions will have fatal consequences for the nature, in one of the most precious areas on the planet. In order to help automate and assist the detection of floating icebergs, we will develop a model to detect the icebergs from satellite images. The complexity of the task is high, as the distinction between ships and icebergs is often impossible, or difficult, even for the human eye.
