Parallel Session on The case for Europe’s leadership in AI for Earth Observation
Scrutinizing the European progress, ongoing and planned initiatives, it is safe to say that Europe has all the necessary building blocks prepared to assume leadership in the development of a robust AI ecosystem, with a high emphasis on the wealth of knowledge that can be extracted from Earth Observation.
The main objective of this session is to highlight the progress made with all the different components, from infrastructure developments, to faster, more complex algorithms and innovative use cases of Earth Observation usage across Europe.
From the beginning the stated scope of the Earth Observation working group within BDVA was to build bridges between the ICT community and the Earth Observation one, as we identified it as being crucial in order for the wider community to fully benefit from the wealth of EO data. Through our EBDVF 2020 session, we share the progress made, the public and private initiatives, the opportunities identified, as well as what are the challenges that lie ahead.
