Satellite on-board data processing

The topic revolves around data processing on remote a edge device. Namely, challenges related to such low-resource computing with the use of NVIDIA’s Jetson platform will be presented. A brief introduction to machine learning algorithms, followed by an in depth explanation of performance optimization methods for their use with limited resources in a harsh environment.

Key points:

  • types of data generated by satellites (broadly)
  • edge computational devices suitable for space projects
  • methods for neural network optimizations

Our speaker

Michał Affek

Michał Affek is an Embedded Machine Learning Researcher at He is currently enrolled in an industrial PhD programme at the Gdansk University of Technology. His main interests are remote sensing (processing done specifically on satellites), machine learning algorithms for edge devices, and parallel computing.


PyData Trójmiasto

PyData Trójmiasto is a series of meetings dedicated to Data Science, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence. The event aims to build a local community through exchanging knowledge and experience. It is where the latest trends in the field of artificial intelligence are discussed, as well as where ideas, research, and ventures developed locally are presented.
