Geo AI – Transforming the geospatial industry

With the developments happening in the geospatial industry like availability of near-real-time data from a variety of sensors, availability of the processing power to ingest and process this data through AI, the geospatial industry is witnessing a new frontier in the field of spatial analytics.

A few key questions that come in this context include:

  • What is the relevance of AI in the context of spatial analytics?
  • What are the problems AI is solving? What challenges is it posing?
  • Is the industry successful in doing prototypes and delivering scalable solutions?
  • What are the new business models evolving with the advent of AI?
  • How ready are geospatial professionals and end customers to prepare for this change?
  • How can the geospatial industry ecosystem get ready towards embracing this change?
  • What is the pace of this shift, where will we be in the next few years?

Geospatial Media is on a quest to provide answers to such questions, and the Geo AI Forum is a one-day event that is making a humble attempt to answer these questions. Join us to kick-start or pace up your AI journey. Join us and learn to unlearn.
