SPACETEC PARTNERS SPRL (BE)
When large amounts of data are concerned, such as those captured by remote sensing devices on satellites used in EO, our computers and AI algorithms can be used to help us solve problems. They can learn to recognise patterns and find correlations that humans would otherwise miss.
The goal of Big EO data analytics is to bring the worlds of AI and EO closer together through a series of challenges based on societal problems that can be solved by combining AI and EO, stimulating and fostering interaction and collaboration.
The initiative targets customers worldwide, with a specific focus on the data science and AI communities. Our customers can be potential challenge participants as well as companies, startups and other entities aiming to launch their challenges in the AI4EO platform. Potential participants can be researchers, students, coders or any other parts interested in combining AI tools and EO data to solve the proposed problems.
We are organizing several artificial intelligence-based challenges with world-class partners and sponsors, and our team manages the platform where the challenges are hosted, the overall organization of the challenges and related events, the interaction with contestants and the marketing campaigns.
