Remote Sensing for Non-Experts: How core industries can benefit from satellite tech

16th Jun, 20

Technology-led business model innovation has been the secret sauce to success for most modern-age digital startups. Core industries, on the other hand, are taking the slow and steady approach, adopting technology in a piecemeal manner, while keeping their core business model or processes unchanged.

COVID-19 crisis: Why cutting vegetation management costs is an urgent need

16th Jun, 20

A new report released by the International Energy Agency (IEA) has revealed that the global energy market is experiencing its biggest shock in 70 years. There has been a steady decline in the demand for energy as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on the analysis of 100 days of data, the IEA projects that global energy use in 2020 will fall by 6% - seven times the decline after the 2008 global financial crisis. 

Remote Sensing: The art behind geospatial data collection for non-experts

18th Mar, 20

The industries of the world are in the midst of a technology-driven transformation. As technology runs on data, collecting and integrating data continues to be a complicated and technical task, especially with respect to geospatial technology. The exponential growth of geospatial technologies in recent years has made available new instruments and capabilities for gathering and managing spatial data. 

Five ways in which AI can empower power utilities

28th Feb, 20

The AI boom is well and truly underway and it could hold the key to unlocking a better future for several core industries. In a world that is getting more and more data-driven, artificial intelligence (AI) will be an important tool that will allow utility companies to make sense of the data flood. According to Seagate, worldwide data will grow 61% to 175 zettabytes by 2025. These are numbers that the human mind is not capable of processing at the same speed as AI.
