Machine Learning for Earth Observation 2024

This workshop will explore how machine learning can help get the most out of remote sensing observations for many application domains.

Event details

Recent years have witnessed a dramatic increase in the acquisition of remote sensing observations from satellite, aircraft and drone-based sensors, and in-situ devices. Technological advances have led to improvements in measurement resolution and precision, which is shifting the paradigm of Earth observation from data scarcity to data abundance. While these data have enormous potential for helping us achieve a range of global challenges, such as meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, identifying the optimal approaches for handling and analysing these ever-growing datasets remains a challenge. Recent breakthroughs in AI/ML offer promising solutions to these challenges, including automated identification and extraction of key observations, predicting future trends, identifying key environmental factors, and dealing with noisy signals under uncertainty.   

This is the second ML4EO workshop following a successful pilot event in 2023. The broad aim is to bring together remote sensing researchers, data science and AI experts, and industrial/third sector partners to build links and share ideas. We hope the workshop will promote further collaboration and help develop research proposals to address specific global challenges. 

There are several different ways to participate in this event: 
• Attend the workshop as a delegate
• Oral presentation (e.g. 10 mins + 5 mins discussion) 
• Poster presentation (ideal for preliminary results or ‘works in progress’)
• Chairing/contributing to a thematic discussion session.
