Advances in satellite technology are giving us unprecedented access to data gathered in space—from geology maps, to weather data, to real-time satellite imagery.

These increasingly available, high-quality datasets can provide fresh insights into sectors as different as public transportation, retail, global shipping, industrial activity and corporate policy, among many others. But what are the opportunities this “space revolution” offers to data science startups? And what companies are already using space data in exciting ways?

To discover that, join us for the very first event in the SHACK15 Data Insights Series, our quarterly events devoted to the fastest-growing areas of data science and AI.

We will be joined by Seraphim Capital, Satellite Applications Catapult and Astrosat to explore satellite data’s potential, and what it means for UK data science startups.
