Moore will discuss Google’s perspective on working with big data, especially from space, and the emergence of the use of massively-parallel cloud computing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence and other tools to extract meaning and insight from these petapixel-scale datasets. There are implications for some of our most intractable global challenges, such as climate change.
