How Deep Learning Gives Us a Precise Picture of All the Water on Earth

How Deep Learning Gives Us a Precise Picture of All the Water on Earth Water levels can indicate the next region that will experience political unrest or where climate change is hitting the hardest. Orbital Insight is monitoring them by applying deep learning to satellite images. Where exactly is all the water on Earth’s surface? Stand-alone satellite images have their limitations, but using artificial intelligence to examine them can now glean precise levels of water around the world and how they are changing week by week.    Palo Alto startup Orbital Insight uses freely available images taken by the U.S. Geological Survey’s Landsat 7 and 8 satellites, much like the images you see on Google Maps. The startup feeds the images into a neural network, which pinpoints the exact location…
