Find below a short description of two of our current projects.

Estimate the amount of solar panels that fit on a roof (computer vision): 
Given a satellite picture and a ground image of a house, automatically detect certain elements of a roof (including obstacles, dormers etc.) in order to find out how many solar panels fit on it. This involves inferring 3d information from 2d pictures in order to infer the roof pitch.

Detect, classify and suggest legal effectiveness of text paragraphs (NLP): 
Automatically go through thousands of legal documents with the goal to classify dedicated paragraphs and check their legal effectiveness. This involves converting scans to text, coming up with a labelling scheme (problem modelling), and detecting different paragraphs automatically, before tackling the inference task.
