This research is about the study of new architectures and algorithms for deep learning in computer vision that will be applied in autonomous robotics and big data, specifically in the inspection of Onshore and Offshore wind-turbines. The goal is to determine which degree of autonomy a UAV can achieve relaying only on vision, and how the deep learning techniques that will be developed can be extended to tackle other big data problems.
