Morning Presentations



Dr. Simon Handley, iBuild Global, Inc.

Semantic computing, Under-banking, & Global Housing

There is a global housing shortage crisis. It particularly impacts those in developing countries, where over 330 million households lack secure, affordable housing. A key driver is the lack of bank accounts and the centrality of the cash economy. People are, in effect, under-banked: no credit scores, no access to credit. It is estimated that for every $1 invested in housing only $0.55 in actual housing is built, resulting in no or sub-standard housing. The solution is to track and manage the money. iBUILD is a powerful smartphone-based platform that seamlessly facilitates the flow of money through the entire construction ecosystem. In this talk we will discuss how machine learning and ontological systems are key to iBUILD's business success. For example, we can use our detailed transactional data from construction projects to build risk models that enable the under-banked to efficiently borrow money for housing.

Dr. Jean-Francois Rajotte, Computer Research Institute of Montréal (CRIM)

Machine learning integration in Earth observation projects at CRIM

The Computer Research Institute of Montreal (CRIM) is leading many projects combining Earth observation (EO) and Machine Learning (ML). Such endeavors are usually associated with integration challenges for (big) data, semantics, algorithms and users in the desired workflow. With its multidisciplinary nature, CRIM is in a unique position to tackle these challenges. In this presentation, we show an overview of a few projects, either on-going or upcoming. We will discuss the various approaches to integrate ML to EO analysis workflows.

In particular, we will discuss an EO version of ImageNet, GeoImageNet which includes land cover and object classes. We will also share aspects of the OGC Machine Learning testbed covering best practices for using OGC web services to deploy ML apps in a Cloud environment. The last presented project is our ongoing analysis with the OpenDataCube as an analysis environment for land cover mapping and change detection. Finally, we will introduce the upcoming ambitious and recently funded Data Analytics for Canadian Climate Services focusing on the challenges to link EO and climate taxonomies.
