Radiant Earth Foundation

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Radiant Earth Foundation is an American non-profit organization founded in 2016.[1][2] Its goal is to apply machine learning for Earth observation[3] to meet the Sustainable Development Goals.[4] The foundation works on developing openly licensed Earth observation machine learning libraries, training data sets[5] and models through an open source hub[6] that support missions worldwide[7] like agriculture,[8] conservation, and climate change.[9] Radiant Earth also works on a community of practice that develop standards, templates and APIs[6] around machine learning for Earth observation. According to scholar David Lindgren, the foundation „serves to make satellite imagery widely accessible and usable for development practitioners“[10].

The Foundation is funded by Schmidt Futures, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation,[1] McGovern Foundation and the Omidyar network[9]
