In France, artificial intelligence found thousands of tax evaders using satellite images
The French tax authority, using artificial intelligence and satellite imagery, found 20,356 illegally built and undeclared pools in the country. For an average structure of 30 square meters, the French have to pay 200 euros per year. Violators also had to pay fines. As a result, the authorities collected 10 million euros. The inspectors used Google and Capgemini software. The results of the AI check were compared with the bases of the cadastral service. The technology will be improved, now it has about 30% error. Artificial intelligence mistakes stretched tarps, solar panels and industrial tanks for swimming pools, but does not find objects under trees.
