Finding Spy Planes with Machine Learning
There are law enforcement surveillance aircraft circling over the United States every day, and in this episode, we'll talk about how some folks at BuzzFeed used public data and machine learning to find them. The fun thing here, in our opinion, is the blend of intrigue (spy planes!) with tech journalism and a heavy dash of publicly available and reproducible analysis code so that you (yes, you!) can see exactly how BuzzFeed identifies the surveillance planes.
