Satellite Imaging Analytics: What can we learn from up there?

Satellite Imaging Analytics:  What can we learn from up there?


When satellite image processing and machine learning algorithms are combined, great things can happen. There’s a plethora of questions we can answer about our surroundings by monitoring earth from space. Can we foresee natural disasters, expedite emergency response for sudden events, or even help retailers place their next branch in a location with optimal pedestrian traffic?
Researchers around the world have been investigating questions like these for years, but there is still so much that can be done.  The sky is the limit... or is it?

Join us to hear what some scientists have done so far in this area, which algorithms have been used, and share with us your ideas on other potential uses of geospatial analytics from the sky.

    Hi! I am a research assistant up in South Dakota, and I am wondering if it would be possible to sit it on these discussions remotely, maybe using Google Hangout, or other webinar type technology. I'm very interested in sensor calibration using lots of geospatial & temporal statistics as they are trended to databases. Thanks!

    Thanks so much for your participation! I hope you had great time last Friday! We received many valuable and inspiring comments on the seminar and the topics. We'll take the comments into the planning of next meetup! And don't forget: our next meetup is on August 26, Algorithmic Trading!!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
