Welcome to SPoC!

We hereby invite data scientists, developers and space experts to explore the possibilities of performing edge learning in space together with the Swedish National Space Agency, the Space Data Lab, AI Sweden and partners.

Welcome to SPoC, Space Proof of Concept, a creative and explorative event on how to train AI models in space - the ultimate edge!

AI Sweden, the Swedish National Space Agency and the RISE Space Data Lab together with you and partners aim to generate PoC:s for space, utilizing the infrastructure in Edge Lab as a simulated space setting.

The event will include inspirational speakers including a keynote by Christer Fuglesang; access to edge devices (simulated satellites); and space data from Copernicus Satellites in the Edge Lab. 

The main focus of the event will be a 'Collaboraton' - a fusion between hackathon and collaboration. This will provide a creative setting for generating interesting ideas and future projects together. You can test grand ideas with others and accelerate our way to space!

Please note that the Collaboraton sessions require some level of technical/space knowledge and/or coding skills.
We expect participants to be relatively comfortable in a software development environment.

Please also note that we need you to sign up for the Collaboraton session, as participant numbers may be limited. The Collabraton is accessable both remotely and onsite. For those who wish to attend onsite, cautionary measures will be taken due to the current pandemic.
