How is AI applied to corrosion detection?

Corrosion detection is a challenging, risky, time-consuming, and expensive process. According to NACE, the global corrosion cost is estimated to be US$2.5 trillion, equivalent to 3.4% of the global GDP (2013). On top of that, it requires workers to inspect every edge of an enormous environment full of flammable hydrocarbons. However, the use of AI is reshaping this practice. AI-powered corrosion detection uses drones and sensors to map the asset digitally. And by adopting cutting-edge technology, this new method is proving to be more efficient and reliable than the traditional one. This article will analyze how AI applied to corrosion [...]
