CloudFerro webinar on using GPU for Artificial Intelligence and Earth Observation applications

Our member, CloudFerro, the operator of CREODIAS platform, is inviting you for a webinar on using GPU for Artificial Intelligence and Earth Observation applications.

From the webinar you will learn about Artificial Intelligence solutions in remote sensing. The speakers will presentuse cases and projects using GPU on Earth Observation cloud, such as CREODIAS, leveraging Copernicus data. You will also get knowledge about ready-to-use solutions for developing AI applications.

WHEN: Wednesday, June 22nd 2022, 14:00-15:30 CEST



  • Introduction: Artificial intelligence and its application in remote sensing – Dr Stefan Lang, University of Salzburg
  • CREODIAS – EO cloud platform with GPU ready for AI application development – Marcin Kowalski, CloudFerro
  • AI processing of satellite data – land classification and urban heat islands projects – Dr Florian Albrecht, University of Salzburg
  • How to implement the AI code – technical demo –  MSc. Gella Getachew Workineh, University of Salzburg
  • Summary, Q&A, discussion – All


Join the webinar if you are a scientist, a researcher, a public administration official or a developer planning to build AI applications in remote sensing.
