This is a really important problem to solve; hope someone does! From Popular Mechanics:
An engineering firm wants to make sense of the abundance of aerial photos we now shoot from planes, satellites, and drones. Draper, out of Massachusetts, has put a $40,000 bounty on an algorithm that can accurately sort and sequence images taken from miles in the sky, with implications, perhaps, to track wildlife, observe erosion, direct traffic, or notice climate change in real time.
The contest, which runs until June 27, requires the algorithms to take a series of images taken of California and correctly sequence them in the order they occured. The hope is that subtle changes can then be noticed (simple enough) and also understood (much trickier).
It might be years before we could understand all the data that correctly sequenced images can convey, but global security operations have been doing similar things for the past 80 years. As the world swims in ever more photos, we could stand to gain a lot by being able to automatically interpret them. The right algorithm could have wide-ranging effects for scientists, corporations, governments, and hobbyists alike.
