Prescient Computing

Our community is perfectly positioned to evolve from analyzing landscapes retrospectively to looking forward. The next ‘killer app’ for geospatial isn’t an app at all, it’s probably the future.

It’s All Big Data, Machine Learning and Platforms

If there were one central theme to this year’s SatSummit, it would be: “machine learning will find all the things, but we need more training data.” It is clear that many teams are finding new and useful ways to leverage enormous amounts of imagery. Against a backdrop of copious compute and ingenious, learning machines, the remote sensing community is steadily moving towards a feature extraction utopia. That said, its fair to say we are not there yet.
