Dr. Mayank Mishra from IIT Bhubaneswar thinks so. His article is most downloaded article in the Journal of Cultural Heritage journal. His article explores the possible use of Machine Learning techniques for inspecting our monuments. India’s old tradition and monuments can be restored by following his vision of using drone-based inspections and the models trained by image data. The article can be downloaded using the link https://doi.org/10.1016/j.culher.2020.09.005.
His work is popular in the cultural heritage journal and will lay the foundation of machine learning in inspecting monuments and historic constructions. . The ML-based approach will promote the timely and effective implementation of retrofitting techniques/repair solutions to ensure the long life of heritage structures in India and abroad.
