Numerous global challenges require a globally comprehensive observation of many variables simultaneously. Combining satellite imagery with machine learning presents an opportunity for assembling such observations. Current solutions require custom systems, extensive expert knowledge, access to imagery, and major computational resources to estimate a single variable using regional or global imagery.
The speaker of this session presents a new, general solution to constructing global observations with machine learning, where a single method for transforming satellite imagery is sufficiently descriptive to predict nearly any ground-level variables that are recoverable through inspection of a satellite image. Following the presentation, discussants discuss the potential of this approach in agricultural applications.
