On April 7th, we had a chance to attend the first large in-person academic conference since the project started more than two years ago. Martin joined GISRUK, coincidentally organised by the Geographic Data Science Lab, and presented ongoing work on developing an AI model to detect spatial signatures based on satellite imagery. The talk focused on the progress we have made so far and specifically on geographical questions arising when we try to link granular geometry of signatures to satellite images and rectangular chips sampled from them.

We have received good feedback and suggestions for the next steps we are currently trying to implement in our plans. For anyone interested, the slides presented during the conference are available here or as a PDF (33MB) here. The extended abstract of the talk is also available in the conference proceedings.
