Winning bootcamp ideas at Φ-week

13 September 2019

On the sidelines of ESA's Φ-week, a five-day app-development bootcamp took place where young developers came together to solve big industry challenges using Earth observation data. The teams developed app prototypes, which were tested by a set of users. Those with the best commercial potential were awarded with prizes.

Swarm non-gravitational acceleration and thermosphere density data reprocessed

12 September 2019

The non-gravitational acceleration and thermosphere density data, both derived from the GPS receiver data, were reprocessed for the entire period from launch in November 2013 until July 2019 for all three Swarm satellites.

Tracing the environmental impacts of supply chains

11 September 2019

Globalisation and international trade allow us to consume produce from all over the world. But this comes at a cost to the environment – but, for the first time, satellite data combined with artificial intelligence is being usedtoprovide information to assess the impact of global supply chains.

Using machine learning for rewilding

10 September 2019

There may not be an obvious connection between rewilding and machine learning, but as highlighted today at ESA's ɸ-week, a project in the Netherlands uses satellite data and new digital technology to understand how a nature reserve responds to the pressure of being grazed by herbivores.

Using artificial intelligence to automate sea-ice charting

10 September 2019

Reliable maps of sea-ice conditions and forecasts are of vital importance for maritime safety, safe navigation and planning. The continued retreating and thinning of Arctic sea ice calls for a more effective way of producing detailed and timely ice information – which is where artificial intelligence comes in.
