The second project meeting of DeepCube was a success!

The National Observatory of Athens organized a two-day virtual event on the 16th and 17th of June, gathering all project partners to discuss the results of the first semester’s research and to plan the activities of the upcoming 6 months.

The first day of the meeting was dedicated to presentations of the work carried out in all Work Packages, followed by presentations and discussions on the implementation of the six Use Cases – Forecasting localized extreme drought impacts in Africa, Climate induced migration in Africa, Fire hazard forecasting in the Mediterranean, Global volcanic unrest detection, Critical infrastructure monitoring, and Copernicus services for sustainable tourism. Day 1 concluded with an extensive and fruitful discussion with the project’s Advisory Board, which provided valuable support and guidance on the research activities of the DeepCube consortium.

Day 2 was dedicated to workshops on the DeepCube technologies and Use Cases. The team of the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry delivered a workshop on the Earth System Data Cube generation and data cube analysis, followed by a workshop led by the Logical Clocks team on the Hopsworks platform and the Maggy framework for distribution transparent machine learning experiments. The day continued with a demonstration of the semantics and visualization technologies for Earth Observation data, led by the team of the University of Athens, and a demonstration of the visualization technologies for social media data provided by the team of INFALIA. The day concluded with parallel technical sessions on the DeepCube platform and the six Use Cases.

Stay tuned for the results and technical developments of the second semester!
