Dear MEL Topic Readers,

What Google street car tells us about income

Google Street View provides panoramic views from positions along many streets in the world, though restrictions apply in some countries such as China and India. It helps you obtain general or specific images of a place where you’re interested to know. For example, you can find what kind of place it is or how to get to a certain place by photo images.

Also, these photographic images provide sociological information, such as a kind of neighborhood, houses, and cars, which are relevant to the household income of the residents. Especially in the U.S., cars often reflect the wealth, income, and household status. And when such information is linked to personal profile data, such as gender, education, employment and political preferences, many things about the household could be predicted just by the type of car(s) parked in front of a house. And of course, AI augments the quality and accuracy of such prediction at a significantly lower cost than conventional methods.

Enjoy reading and think what could become relevant to what by using existing data and AI technology.
