1.WHAT NASA AND IBM DO WITH AI?
Nasa and ibm announce a partnership confirming the development of new artificial intelligence (ai)-based models that support the analysis of geospatial data from satellites to better understand and act on climate change.
2.HOW AI WORKING IN THIS PARTNERSHIP’S INITIAL GOALS?
One of the partnership’s initial goals is to train a baseline model on nasa’s harmonized landsat sentinel-2 (hls) dataset. hls contains petabytes of data collected from space about land-use change on earth. it was also developed in collaboration with nasa to broaden its applicability and positively impact enterprise use cases for ai.
3.WHY IBM STRONGLY BELIEVE IN PYTORCH?
The open source machine learning framework pytorch was started at facebook and spun off as its own pytorch foundation In september 2022. ibm research has been an active contributor to his pytorch, building features into the pytorch 1.13 release framework to support running large-scale workloads on commodity hardware. they rely solely on pytorch to train all their base models.
They believe in expanding and accelerating the scientific process in terms of building and solving specific scientific problems. instead of humans building their own machine learning pipelines, we start by collecting large amounts of training data.
