We’ve been heads down, hard at work tackling challenges in Earth Science and Disaster Response and are ready to share what we’re doing with all of you. June 11-12, we’ll be joining AWS at their Public Sector Summit in Washington, DC to talk about some of these challenges and how we’re working to solve them. […]
With Functions as a Service (FaaS), cloud providers promise us the ability to deploy, run, and scale small pieces of application code without worrying about the underlying hardware or virtual machines.

In this example, we’re going to use the same imagery source and label data as a proxy for data produced by our AWS disaster […]
