Event on Artificial Intelligence in Earth Observation

On 17 September 2019, the AI4Copernicus Day took place in Namur, Belgium.

This cross-border working day focused on integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Earth Observation (EO) research and developments. Actors from the Walloon Region and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg gathered in order to set up a community linking both technologies. More than 250 participants joined the working day, coming from the public and private sector, research centres and academia.

A total of 21 international expert speakers and 6 panelists gave insights into the relevant topics, including:

  • State of the art of AI in EO
  • Successful examples and applications of AI in EO (e.g. the use of Sentinel-1 and AI for flood monitoring)
  • Needs and challenges to implement AI in EO via a round table
  • European and regional tools to support AI implementation and funding potential
