CANOPY TALKS

Using satellites to monitor environmental change

5.30 pm – 8.30 pm

Gold Mining in the Amazon

Every ten days, a constellation of satellites works together to take a high-resolution picture of each location on earth. Most of this data is and will be used for defense and intelligence purposes, but we can also use this data for environmental purposes.
In this talk with Caleb Kruse, he will share how we’ve used AI and satellite data to build Amazon Mining Watch to track the progress of illegal mining activity in Brazil, and Global Plastic Watch to find plastic waste before it ends up in the ocean.
