Using EOLearn to build a machine learning pipeline to detect plastics in the ocean.


Go to NumFOCUS academy page.

The past 10 years has seen an explosion of data from remote sensing satellites.This data, which can be used for a wide range of applications, can be hard to obtain and use. EOLearn aims to bridge the gap between the remote sensing and machine learning world. In this talk, we will discuss how to build a ML remote sensing pipeline in python using an ocean plastic detection project as an example.
