The damage rating index (DRI) is among the most promising microscopy methods for condition assessment of concrete infrastructures. However, it requires experts to perform time-consuming petrographic microscopy of samples. The article discusses a study aimed at automating DRI assessments using machine learning (ML). It is expected that ML will reduce the subjectively yet increase the speed, reproducibility, accessibility, and accuracy of DRI determination.
