ML for Understanding Satellite Imagery at Scale with Kyle Story

800 800 The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we’re joined by Kyle Story, computer vision engineer at Descartes Labs.

Kyle and I caught up after his recent talk at the Google Cloud Next Conference titled “How Computers See the Earth: A Machine Learning Approach to Understanding Satellite Imagery at Scale.” We discuss some of the interesting computer vision problems he’s worked on at Descartes, including custom object detectors and the company’s geovisual search engine, covering everything from the models they’ve developed and platform they’ve built, to the key challenges they’ve had to overcome in scaling them.
