    Short course (Strasbourg) by International Space University (ISU) · €2000 (~£1703) · Current

    Astrobiology is the interdisciplinary study of life in the universe and touches on some of the most profound questions in both science and philosophy. How and when did life on Earth emerge from a ‘pool of organic molecules’? Is there life on Mars, extant or extinct? Could other bodies in the solar system harbor life, e.g. Enceladus, Titan and Europa? Do intelligent civilizations exist elsewhere in our galaxy? All of these questions – and many more – will be addressed in ISU’s 7th annual Astrobiology Elective (April 11-21, 2023). The Elective will welcome some of the finest Astrobiologists in the world, e.g. Dr. Christopher P. McKay (NASA Ames Research Center), Dr. Frances Westall (Director Emeritus of the CNRS Exobiology Group, Orléans) and Dr. Joseph A. Nuth, III (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center). The program will highlight current and future astrobiology missions, e.g. Martian rovers such as Perseverance and its successors. The Elective will consist of presentations, roundtable discussions, workshops, and a field trip devoted to collecting and analyzing magnetotactic bacteria. The single deliverable will be a group White Paper, of which there will be four offered. In the past, they have included topics such as, “The potential of the Canadian Arctic for Astrobiology research”, and “Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a Biomarker for the Astrobiology Community”.

    Modeling Forest Aboveground Biomass using EO Data and Machine Learning: Challenges and Opportunities

    MOOC (Online) by AI.Geolabs · Free · Current

    Miombo woodland ecosystems (in Africa) play a vital role in the global carbon cycle, however, it is currently difficult to know how much carbon they store and sequester due to a lack of data. Therefore, an accurate estimation of forest above ground biomass (AGB) is required to provide the baseline of forest carbon stocks and quantify the anthropogenic emissions caused by deforestation and forest degradation. In addition, accurate estimation of forest AGB is critical to implementing cost-effective carbon emission mitigation strategies.

    Data-centric Explainable Machine Learning for Land Cover Mapping

    MOOC (Online) by AI.Geolabs · Free · Current

    In this course, explainable machine learning refers to the extent to which the underlying mechanism of a machine learning model can be explained (Biecek and Burzykowski 2020). That is, explainable machine learning models allow us (humans) to explain what the model learned and how it made predictions (post-hoc). Note this is different from interpretable machine learning (e.g., linear and logistic regression models), which refers to the extent to which a cause and effect are observed within a model (Molnar 2019).

    Earth Observation: Disruptive Technology and New Space

    MOOC (Online) by European Space Agency (ESA) and Imperative Space · Free · Current

    This is a short MOOC from ESA which consists of a series of interviews with leading experts across Earth Observation and related technologies. This MOOC also acts as an additional section for the 'Earth Observation from Space: The Optical View' MOOC. The explosion in Earth Observation (EO) data from the Sentinel programme, a new generation of commercial satellites, and emerging constellations of small-sats, has created one of the greatest ‘big data’ challenges in the world today. In this course you will explore technologies such as AI, 3D data visualisation, cloud computing technologies and blockchain, and learn how they are meeting the needs of the ever growing data analytics and data navigation challenges in EO. This short course now includes an extra module on how ESA is responding to the digital trends highlighted in previous modules, and the real-world impact emerging from ESA's Phi innovation strategy.

    Agricultural Crop Classification with Synthetic Aperture Radar and Optical Remote Sensing

    Seminar (Online) by European Space Agency (ESA) · Free · Current

    This five-part, intermediate webinar series focused on the use of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) from Sentinel-1 and/or optical imagery from Sentinel-2 to map crop types and assessed their biophysical characteristics. The webinar covered a SAR and optical refresher along with pre-processing and analysis of Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data using the Sentinel Application Platform (SNAP) and Python code written in JupyterLab, a web-based interactive development environment for scientific computing and machine learning. The webinar also covered an operational roadmap for mapping crop type, including best practices for collecting field data to train and validate models for classifying crops on a national level. The final session of this series covered crop biophysical variable retrievals using optical data.

    Robotics Workshop

    Short course (Belgium) by European Space Agency (ESA) · Free · Current

    Planetary exploration is a fascinating sector that ESA is investing heavily in, with projects including the pioneering Rosetta mission to a comet, the ambitious Artemis mission to the Moon (constructing the European Service Module), and the cutting-edge Rosalind Franklin rover destined for Mars. The present and future missions of Mars exploration are the inspiration behind the Robotics Workshop. Over four days, participating students will delve into the design and operation of a planetary exploration robotic vehicle based on the European rover that will be sent to investigate the surface of the red planet. Particular attention will be given to software, starting with installing basic components of Linux and ROS (Robot Operating System). Students will then study the locomotion system, developing algorithms that will allow the robot to move. Finally, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence will be utilised to grant the capability of recognising specific objects on the surface of Mars.
