EMBARK WITH US ON A JOURNEY TO EXPLORE THE POWER OF SATELLITE DATA COMBINED WITH THE POWER OF AI AND MACHINE LEARNING.
Space has always been a domain of exploration and new discoveries, a field for those who dare to reveal the unknown. Since the launch of the first satellite Sputnik in 1957, satellites have been surrounding our planet.
The New Space Revolution is changing the rules of the game and opening the skies for new players. Remote sensing (imagery) satellites of different types allow us to observe the earth 24/7 during day and night time. High resolution data is now more affordable and accessible to individual players and private companies.
During the Hackathon and preparation participants will get access to hundreds of geospatial images provided by VENµS, the Israeli-French research satellite, and our leading sponsors Airbus and ISI.
What can be done with all this new data?
This will be your challenge.
The Ramon Foundation wishes to follow in the footsteps of Col. Ilan Ramon – the first Israeli astronaut - and assist space industry entrepreneurs to start their own businesses. Our mission is to support the growth of the Israeli space sector and enhance the implementation of innovation in our field, while simultaneously positioning Israel as a global innovation center for new space and space applications.
2019 WINNING TEAMS
The 2019 Ramon AI hackathon Introduced amazing imagery to over 80 competent and experienced entrepreneurs, AI, machine learning, deep learning, and big data experts. After 3 weeks of work, and 2 days 'marathon' at the BeALL compound, 3 winning teams were announced:
1st place- Team
Developed an algorithm that maps and ranks sites for installing solar panels. The technology is based upon optical satellite images and weather and sun forecasts.
2nd place- Team Poseyedon
The team introduced technology that identifies specific ships from space using a combination of face recognition technologies and remote sensing.
3rd place - Team
Developed three-dimensional models of buildings using satellite imagery. The model enables the identification of changes in the height of structures and various objects over time.
Applications deadline, interviews
Deadline to apply without a team
In this phase the website is open for applications. Participation is allowed for teams only - if you do not have a team, please apply by 15.2 so you have time for finding teammates. The actual hackathon participants will be selected after phone interviews.
The preparations phase starts with a big meetup. In the following weeks, participants will get familiarized with geospatial imagery and will get the opportunity to tryout their algorithms using real data.
The two-day main hackathon event, in which you'll work on your algorithms with expert mentors from the partner companies, and millions of shekels' worth of data.
