Description

The objective of this session to present the Big Data and AI Techniques for Earth Observation pioneered by the H2020 project “ExtremeEarth: From Copernicus Big Data to Extreme Earth Analytics” (http://earthanalytics.eu/).

ExtremeEarth concentrates on Copernicus data, probably the most paradigmatic case of big open data in the European Union today, and arguably one of the most valuable for our planet . The extraction of knowledge and commercial value from Copernicus data is also of utmost importance for the European industry and society. ExtremeEarth addresses this issue explicitly through its two use cases that bring together the Food Security and Polar TEPs. Knowledge extraction is done through deep learning techniques that work at the extreme scale of data expected in Copernicus. ExtremeEarth also addresses the management of the information and knowledge extracted from Copernicus data using Semantic Web and Linked Data technologies. The implementation of these technologies in the European Hops data platform will enable the computation of extreme geospatial analytics on top of Copernicus information and knowledge.

Description

Scrutinizing the European progress, ongoing and planned initiatives, it  is safe to say that Europe has all the necessary building blocks prepared to assume leadership in the development of a robust AI ecosystem, with a high emphasis on the wealth of knowledge that can be extracted from Earth Observation.
The main objective of this session is to highlight the progress made with all the different components, from infrastructure developments, to faster, more complex algorithms and innovative use cases of Earth Observation usage across Europe. 

From the beginning the stated scope of the Earth Observation working group within BDVA was to build bridges between the ICT community and the Earth Observation one, as we identified it as being crucial in order for the wider community to fully benefit from the wealth of EO data.  Through our EBDVF 2020 session, we share the progress made, the public and private initiatives, the opportunities identified, as well as what are the challenges that lie ahead.

Description

This session is for all those who have built the Big Data community of the Big Data Value Association and the Big Data Value Public Privare Partnership during these years. Before entering into a new adventure, let’s share the best memories and experiences: EBDVF 2020 is the perfect moment to tell how the BDVA/PPP made a difference in our life, in research, in the big data environment, in Europe. EBDVF is opening the floor to all community members who want to share their personal experience and thoughts about the value of the work done in the BDVA and the PPP. A call for volunteer speakers will be launched very soon: stay tuned so you can have your say!
