UN Satellite Centre Works With Nvidia

To foster climate action for a healthy global environment, Nvidia is working with the United Nations Satellite Centre (UNOSAT) to apply the powers of deep learning and AI.

The effort supports the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which has at its core 17 interrelated sustainable development goals. These SDGs – which include “climate action” and “sustainable cities and communities” – serve as calls to action for all UN member states to bolster global well-being.

The collaboration between UNOSAT, part of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, and Nvidia is initially focused on boosting climate-related disaster management by using AI for Earth Observation. AI4EO, as it’s known, is a term that encompasses initiatives using AI to help monitor and assess the planet’s changes.

To fast track research and development for its AI4EO efforts, UNOSAT will integrate its satellite imagery technology infrastructure with Nvidia’s accelerated computing platform. The AI-powered satellite imagery system will collect and analyze geospatial information to provide near-real-time insights about floods, wildfires and other climate-related disasters.

In addition, UNOSAT has launched an educational module that builds upon an Nvidia Deep Learning Institute (DLI) course on applying deep learning methods to generate accurate flood detection models.
