2020 Natural Capital Symposium

Harnessing Artificial Intelligence and Earth Observation in Service of Sustainable Development

March 16, 2020 - 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Munger Conference Center, Paul Brest East

With the growing availability of remote sensing imagery and accessibility of machine learning techniques, the combination of Earth Observation and Artificial Intelligence now has the potential to reveal previously invisible aspects of the natural and built world at previously unimaginable scales. In this session, we explore how these approaches are furthering sustainable development efforts. Experts share recent examples of how they are using these new capabilities to provide governments, development agencies and other decision makers with the information needed to improve environmental management and make development efforts more equitable and inclusive.
