Prof. Dr. Hannes Taubenböck was invited to give a keynote lecture at the symposium of the International Future Lab AI4EO 2023 at the TUM Campus in Ottobrunn. The title of his talk was “Understanding Urbanization using EO & AI: Capabilities and Challenges“.
In his talk, he showed the immense possibilities of AI/ML methods today to transform the rising amounts of satellite data into reliable geoinformation. He also discussed the challenges in the image classification domains from the aspects of unambiguous definition of target classes, the generation of consistent reference data and accuracy assessment. Furthermore, he discussed urban applications using various EO classification products, e.g. to rank the largest cities across the globe to lay open that official statistics be the United Nations are not unambiguous. Or, he introduced a global typification of morphological city types around the world or what it means how we structure our building environments for sustainable development.
