We just launched our liveProject platform — where you can sign up for a structured project and get real-world experience.
In this liveProject, you’ll fill the shoes of a data scientist at UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). Your job involves assessing long-term changes to freshwater deposits, one of humanity’s most important resources. Recently, two European Space Agency satellites have given you a massive amount of new data in the form of satellite imagery. Your task is to build a deep learning algorithm that can process this data and automatically detect water pixels in the imagery of a region. To accomplish this, you will design, implement, and evaluate a convolutional neural network model for image pixel classification, or image segmentation. Your challenges will include compiling your data, training your model, evaluating its performance, and providing a summary of your findings to your superiors. Throughout, you’ll use the Google Collaboratory (“Colab”) coding environment to access free GPU computer resources and speed up your training times.
