Alpha from Overhead: Spaceborne Insights Come of Age 

QWAFAFEW discussions led by:

David Potere, PhD

Abstract

Over the past two years, a new wave of spaceborne intelligence has begun to make its way into the hands of leading investors. We’re not talking about counting cars in Walmart parking lots to get ahead of 10-K filings – today, thanks to smartphones, there are perhaps better ways to do that from right here on Earth. Today’s new space insights are different in kind. Armed with modern distributed compute and machine learning platforms, teams are using decades of open, science-grade satellite data to tackle continental-scale questions in agriculture, forestry, water resources, and energy and urban-industrial systems. In this session, we’ll unpack some of the forces that are making these new insights possible, probe the strengths and limitations of the new models, and discuss what this means for global commodities markets. Along the way, we’ll explore some of the beautiful imagery of our home planet that fuels this new class of insights.
