Frank de Morsier
I worked on bringing the Earth Observation (EO) & Machine Learning fields close together to bring value to broad audiences of customers in various industries. I have worked in the area of image processing, pattern recognition and machine learning since my engineering and PhD studies . I have co-founded Picterra as a concrete way to bring EO information into the global economy. At the moment I am Chief Operating Officer, and lecturer at UNIL and EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland) previously, as well as mentoring students. At Picterra we develop an AI geospatial platform to extract information from EO imagery in an efficient way. It relies on innovative advances in Deep Learning, Low-shot learning, Active learning, Domain adaptation and Multi-sensor fusion. Our goal is to bring more value to our clients by leveraging EO insights in their business.
