With the vast availability of imagery that is streaming down daily from a variety of sensors, the need for artificial intelligence (AI) to automate feature extraction is increasing.  Many use cases are now available, showing the benefit of using this cutting edge of technology.  

Universities have started incorporating deep learning/AI into their teaching and research. To support, Esri is providing ready-to-use geospatial AI models in the ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World.   There are currently over 60 pretrained deep learning models have been made available.   The ability to train deep learning models on geospatial datasets and derive information products is available using the ArcGIS Online raster analysis tools, ArcGIS Pro or ArcGIS API for Pytho. Users can also scale up processing using ArcGIS Image Server.


Following are a list of resources to get familiar with these ready-to-use deep learning models and how to get started.
