Azure Cognitive Services Custom Vision - the easiest way to start with AI

During one of my projects we aimed at reducing the total cost of ownership for maintenance of a huge network of power lines that spans across the whole country. The idea was to utilize drones that will fly above power lines, take some photos and look for power lines that are in distress or about to break. At the moment this job is done manually by a group of people, which is definitely not the way you want to do it on a big scale.

But before running the project we were supposed to justify the expenses, because business people wanted to know to know what would it cost them and what would be the ROI, etc.?

I will share how we used Azure Cognitive Services Custom Vision API to create a model that was able to analyze all of the photos from the drones automatically and recognize the power lines that might potentially break, so we can send our repair team and prevent the outage from happening.
