Last winter in Moscow, three neural networks were tested and implemented, which detect uncleared roads in screenshots from city surveillance cameras, as well as icicles, ice and snow on the roofs of houses. Over the course of several months, neural networks helped specialists from the Center for Automated Recording of Administrative Offenses (CAFAP) identify 15.5 thousand such shortcomings and transmit information about them to the capital’s services. Over the past season, more than 24.9 thousand winter problems were corrected with the help of artificial intelligence.

“Artificial intelligence in the capital’s video surveillance system helps city services identify shortcomings, promptly transfer requests and monitor the execution of work. It processes up to 56 thousand screenshots per hour, saving specialists from viewing such a colossal volume of images. Thanks to new neural networks in winter, TsAFAP employees could quickly find areas where there is ice, icicles or uncollected snow, including on the roofs of buildings. On behalf of the Moscow Mayor, we will continue to develop artificial intelligence services to help public utilities, so that the city becomes even cleaner and more comfortable,” said the head of the city video surveillance department of the capital

Department of Information Technologies Alexey Kornikov.

CAFAP has been using neural networks since 2019. Artificial intelligence analyzes screenshots from 180 thousand city CCTV cameras and helps specialists identify 25 types of flaws with an accuracy of more than 90 percent. Neural networks learn using screenshots where defects have already been identified and indicated. They then begin to analyze the images themselves. During busy periods, CAFAP operators can receive for processing only those materials in which artificial intelligence has detected possible deviations. Specialists check the results of the neural network and, if the information is confirmed, report it to city services.

The implementation of digital solutions in the field of public administration corresponds to the objectives of the national program “Digital Economy of the Russian Federation” and the regional project of the city of Moscow “Digital Public Administration”. You can find out more about this and other national projects being implemented in the capital Online.
