Archaeological sites are becoming an increasingly important issue in regards to Industry and their relationship with the communities that they work in. In Alberta alone, there are over 40,000 known Archaeological Sites with new ones being discovered every year.
These sites must be protected, but how do you protect something if you don’t know where it is? For many years, traditional methods such as statistical modelling have been used to predict where sites may be; however, these traditional methods are often subject to individual biases and preconceptions. However, in recent years, advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence is enabling major improvements in development planning and operations, including the prediction and protection of archaeological and other historic sites.
In this 45 minute webinar, Reid Graham, from Tree Time Services will explore how innovations in machine learning are helping predict where archaeological sites are far better than traditional approaches.
