Hunger is prevailing. In a world where we produce enough food to feed everyone, 811 million people still go to bed hungry each night; that’s one in every 10 people worldwide. The COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, and complex social-economic factors make the situation even more dire.
By contrast, space, satellite, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies have radically transformed humanity’s ability to observe and model Earth’s systems.
It’s inevitable then that we pose the question: how can Earth observation (EO) and AI help those in need?
To find an answer, the Φ-lab at the European Space Agency, together with the World Food Programme (WFP) Innovation Accelerator, are launching the new EO & AI for SDGs Innovation Programme. We’re searching for cutting-edge innovations that use EO and AI technologies to address the challenges that WFP faces in its operations, while striving for business viability and industry leadership. Do you have an idea that can help us solve world hunger?
