Seminar on Satellite Image Analysis via Deep Learning


The last decade has seen an explosion in the availability and affordability of commercial satellite imagery. This growth has yielded tremendous improvements in our ability to perform environmental monitoring, commercial development, and defense and intelligence planning. However, the deluge of data has made it difficult for image analysts to prioritize their efforts. This presents an immediate need for novel machine learning and computer vision techniques which can identify and flag significant changes among thousands of images per day. In this seminar, we will cover the basics of satellite imagery analytics using modern computer vision techniques. The seminar will have a particular focus on training deep learning models for satellite imagery analysis.

Everyone is welcome to attend. Please RSVP by emailing Harbir Antil.

We meet on Thursdays, 10:30 am - 11:30 am in Room 4106, EXPL Hall. Seminar Flyer.

The seminar speakers are Dr. Patrick O'Neil and Dr. Diego Torrejon (BlackSky).
