BRAILS (Building and Infrastructure Recognition using AI at Large-Scale) provides a set of Python modules that utilize deep learning (DL), and computer vision (CV) techniques to extract information from satellite and street level images. The BRAILS framework also provides turn-key applications allowing users to put individual modules together to determine multiple attributes in a single pass or train general-purpose image classification, object detection, or semantic segmentation models.
