What Images Tell Us about Our World
Rapid advances in imaging – from with the proliferation of high-res photography on millions of smartphones worldwide to real-time video of the earth’s surface from space – are not only changing how we share stories about the world around us, but opening wide a brand new source of big data. But how does a photo of a tomato stand in Bangalore translate into meaningful economic data? Conversely, how can video from 500 miles above Earth’s surface shed light on a humanitarian crisis on the ground?
Skybox Imaging Co-Founders, Chief Product Officer Dan Berkenstock and Director of Marketing Ching-Yu Hu, are teaming up with Premise Co-Founders David Soloff and Joe Resinger to discuss how advances in imaging are unlocking information previously unavailable. They’ll discuss the collection of image-based data streams from both the street and space, and how they distill them into transparent insights across myriad fields like macroeconomics, humanitarian aid, mapping and manufacturing.
