ON-ORBIT AI & CLOUD COMPUTING (ATLANTIC COUNCIL), Aug 5, 2020, virtual, 12:00 pm ET

The Atlantic Council’s GeoTech Center in partnership with Unibap will hold a webinar on August 5, 2020 from 12:00-1:00 pm ET to discuss “On-Orbit AI & Cloud Computing.”

The event’s website describes it this way:

The conversation looks into the opportunities afforded by on-orbit AI and cloud computing. Questions that the panelists will answer include:

  1. What impacts on business models and geopolitical decisions will a higher degree of timely global information from intelligent processing on earth observation and remote sensing give?
  1. Will a capability of on-board autonomy operations and automated mission planning be key enablers to provide timely, low-latency and low-cost user information? Are there differences if you consider constellations of smaller satellites or a few larger more capable satellites?
  1. How will future science, exploration missions, and human settlements on the Moon and Mars benefit from a higher degree of on-orbit AI and cloud computing?
  1. Will we see the same driving forces behind on-orbit cloud computing services as we have experienced for cloud computing for ground-based services?
  1. Will the capability for on-orbit cloud technologies bring forward an echo system of applications that can be deployed with high flexibility supported by new commercial models (i.e. pay-as-you-go)?

A video introducing the SpaceCloud system solution for Machine Learning and Cloud Computing will be aired before the event begins. The video, produced by Unibap and its US partners, provides additional information on how capabilities for near real-time processing and AI can be utilized on a 6U CubeSat in the NASA HyTI mission. More information about the video will be shared at the beginning of August.

That is all the information as of August 2.  Check the event’s website for more recent information.
