On Wednesday, July 21, at 12:00 p.m. EDT, the GeoTech Center will air a previously recorded event on the future of data and AI in space. The recording will be available on this page.
On April 29, 2020, Fredrik Bruhn, Amy Webb, Paul Jurasin, and Anthony Scriffignano shared their perspectives on how commercial space efforts are progressing to include satellites and other new technologies via advances in data and AI capabilities.
The discussion highlighted how historical computational capabilities and limited electrical power available to satellites prevented edge computing in space. All data had to be transmitted back to Earth for processing. With advances in both processing as well as performance relative to onboard power capabilities, it is now possible to process petaflops of data in space. These advances and all future advances, change the capabilities of commercial space endeavors and services that can be provided to individuals and organizations around the world.
