Supervised Deep Learning techniques in EO often depend on labelled data. It would be expensive and time-consuming to obtain such labels for the massive amount of EO data that the Sentinel satellites of the Copernicus program have been gathering. In order to effectively exploit this abundant pool of data, the project “RepreSent” will therefore harness the power of non-supervised learning.

Detecting landslides and illegal waste dumps showcase a chance for Earth observation missions. This can be done most effectively with Artificial Intelligence methods that are trained to detect spatio-temporal surface anomalies – a task that also brings challenges.

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) has been working closely with IMF in the past years to establish European’s largest research capacity when it comes to applying Machine Learning in Earth observations. Starting in 2022, we will launch a national ML4Earth center of excellence with high visibility. We will tackle fundamental methodical challenges in AI4EO at the international level and their application to the European mission of a Digital Twin Earth.

In recent years, Earth observation (EO) has entered the era of Big Data. Satellite imaging, combined with other data sources (e.g. financial trends, soil information, weather patterns), currently enables us to monitor the Earth almost on a daily basis. Frequent revisits of the same spot on the ground have opened up the possibility for fine-level, task-specific change detection monitoring and understanding applications.

The high level of signals transmissivity during severe weather as well as the low-cost, low-mass and lowpower GNSS-R receivers operating on low-Earth orbiting satellites, are some of the advantageous characteristics of this technique. Conventional GNSS-R retrieval algorithms rely on the parametric regression approaches inverting observables to the geophysical data products. These models are developed based on simplifying assumptions due to the complexity in the physics of signals scattering from ocean surface.

Agriculture is a crucial factor in climate change. It is not only a cause, but at the same time also massively affected by such changes. Adaption in the agricultural sector is vital. The project ‘Artificial Intelligence for Earth Observation’ (AI4EO) has announced a competition to obtain with AI methodology more precise agriculture data based on data from Europe’s Sentinel satellites.

Data provide the raw materials for research, innovation and business in the 21st century. Open, unbiased and transparent access to information is therefore a basic prerequisite for the free development of a digital society. However, internet searches have become highly monopolised. This has an impact on access to information and knowledge, hinders scientific research and industrial activities, and is detrimental to Europe’s digital sovereignty.
The OpenSearch@DLR project is addressing this area of digital technology, which is strategically important for the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and for scientific research. It explores concepts for a distributed and open infrastructure for next-generation internet search.

Im November 2019 startet mit AI4CORE ein von der Helmholtz Gesellschaft gefördertes Projekt zur Implementierung von Methoden der künstlichen Intelligenz in der Kryosphärenforschung.
Wir planen ein intelligentes Verarbeitungssystem für Erdbeobachtungsdaten zur Beobachtung des Erdbebenzyklus und der vulkanischen Aktivität in Südamerika.

In the Helmholtz Artificial Intelligence Cooperation Unit (HAICU) the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres is setting up an innovative network for applied artificial intelligence (AI). HAICU will design, implement, and distribute AI methodologies for such purposes as analysing complex climate, energy, transportation and health systems. In this network the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich was awarded the contract for the "HAICU Local" unit in the aviation, aerospace and transportation research fields.
While the volume, complexity, and real-time requirements of scientific data across all areas of research - in particular in the data-rich Helmholtz environments - are strongly increasing, experts in data science are rare or do not even exist. We therefore face an urgent need for training the next generation of scientists at the interface of data science and various domain sciences.

In 2050, it is expected that three fourths of the world’s population will live in metropolises. This transition will inherently alter the physical dimensions and configurations of cities at all scales, which is a fact presenting an enormous challenge to urban planners and logisticians. Yet, our understanding of urbanization at these scales is primarily based on United Nations population figures, but these statistics do not provide information on the distribution, pattern, and evolution of the built environment. For example, the knowledge of the spatial evolution as well as the posulation density of informal settlements such as slums or refugee settlements in many mega-cities is far from sufficient for a sustainable planning.

Der Fokus des Projekts „Big-Data-Plattform“ (BDP) ist eine methodische „Data-Science“-Plattform für schwerpunktübergreifende Analysen heterogener, verteilter Daten. Hierzu werden Big-Data- und Cloud-Computing-Technologien adressiert. Neben ihrem Einsatz in den großen Datenanwendungen des DLR unterstützt die Plattform Nutzer aus Industrie, Behörden und Öffentlichkeit beim Aufbau komplexer Wertschöpfungsketten und schafft neue Möglichkeiten der Handlung und Planung zum Beispiel in den Bereichen Mobilität, Umwelt und Sicherheit.
