TGI GeoAI Working Group Kickoff Meeting

March 6 @ 2:30 pm CST - 4:30 pm CST

The Taylor Geospatial Institute is excited to announce a new GeoAI Working Group and is calling on Geospatial AI research and technology experts across academia, government, and industry to collaborate, innovate, and develop solutions that will solve critical challenges across the domain.

Register now for this two hour event happpening at Collab @ the Cortex Innovation Community4220 Duncan Avenue, 3rd floor, St. Louis, MO, 63110, and online.

GeoAI is already transforming the speed at which we are navigating and analyzing the overwhelming amount of geospatial information required for any decision-making application. The TGI GeoAI working group provides a forum for our diverse inter-disciplinary community to explore GeoAI topics from the use of GeoAI in feature extraction, classification, and detection, to machine learning for clustering, change detection, and spatiotemporal forecasting, to the exploration of Natural Language Processing (NLP), and more.

Event speakers:

  • Josh Delmonico, USGS
  • Samantha Arundel, USGS
  • Brady Moore, Cesium
  • Mark Munsell, NGA
  • Mike Fernando, Scale.Ai

Topics for consideration before the event:

  • What is the current state of GeoAI?
  • What are some generative AI affects in the geospatial domain, both short and long term?
  • How can AI accelerate information from data (usable vs useful)?
  • What are examples of synthetic data (current state and research challenges)?
  • State of AI support towards Federal big data providers and their geo data (NASA, USGS, EPA, etc.)?
  • What are the current and future states of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) and pattern recognition, super-resolution, etc.?
  • What are the challenges in training Generative AI models?
  • What are the ethical and legal concerns of using Geo AI and how can we reduce issues related to bias, fairness, privacy, misinformation, deceptive content, etc.?

The working group aims to influence policy and regulations, along with technology and geospatial advancements towards economic development, commercialization, and further research in the field to help address challenges in climate, national security, urban planning, and other domains that are identified. The GeoAI Working Group is open to faculty, researchers, and students at any of the eight TGI partner institutions as well as industry and government partners by request.

The event will be recorded and shared with attendees and registrants that are unable to attend.
