Radiant Earth Foundation is hosting an international expert workshop to discuss how best to use machine learning (ML) techniques on NASA’s Earth Observation (EO) data and address environmental challenges. In particular, generation and usage of training datasets for ML applications using EO will be discussed. Participants of the workshop will evaluate recent advancements, identify existing obstacles and develop a best practices guideline to enhance the adoption of these techniques.   

This workshop is sponsored by the NASA Earth Science Data Systems (ESDS) program.
