Using computer vision to examine Google Street View, the researchers analyzed how streets and blocks have changed in five American cities.
Tested with five American cities, Streetchange quantifies the physical improvement or deterioration of neighborhoods.
A recently published paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) looks at factors that predict neighborhood change.
Researchers have used machine learning to quantify the physical improvement or deterioration of neighborhoods in five American cities.
