By Sandra Cabrera Alvarado & Geoff Sawyer How can we help the media get better use of EO in its progressive use? This was the main question raised by Geoff while opening this EO Cafe. Since the launch of Landsat (1972) followed by SPOT (1986), EO has been used as a tool by journalists to show the readers of the
Delivering 12 TB of space data per day, Copernicus is the world’s largest space data provider. This high volume presents a serious challenge to analysts. At the same time, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming an indispensable and ubiquitous tool for growth and innovation. In this context, the EU-funded AI4Copernicus project will bridge the EU AI on-demand platform AI4EU with Copernicus Data and Information Access Services (DIAS) platforms to allow innovative players to break new ground. The project will organise, fund and support four open calls for SMEs, facilitating the development of novel, useful and ethical-by-design artificial intelligence innovations (8 small-scale experiments and 9 larger-scale use-cases).

One way, the most obvious (perhaps) is to use EO images as a backdrop for the game. This is the case with the Microsoft Flight Simulator which we understand is now using Sentinel-2 data to provide the terrain over which the aircraft is flying.
EO is in the News! Promoting Global News This week‘s EOcafe will take us into the world of media and communications! In the early days of satellite Earth Observation, it seemed that the main use of the images coming from Landsat and SPOT was to show the readers of main-stream media (MSM) views of the
