ESA is inviting as much as 25 dedicated cellular app builders and specialists in synthetic and machine studying associated to observing Earth from area to affix this yr’s Area App Camp, which will probably be a digital occasion over eight weeks, from July 20 to September 20.
The Area App Camp goals to make Earth remark knowledge and providers accessible to a variety of residents utilizing their good telephones or private units. An array of Earth remark satellites, together with the Copernicus Sentinel missions, collects an unlimited quantity of information. This massive knowledge from area reveals details about our planet’s ambiance, land, and water, and gives numerous alternatives for creating enticing, even transformational purposes in reference to cellular apps.
Area App Camp members will probably be launched to the Copernicus knowledge and learn the way massive knowledge from area can enrich cellular apps utilizing a devoted API for Earth remark knowledge. The 2021 digital version revolves round an enhanced cooperation with the ESA’s Ф-lab, whose mission is to speed up the way forward for Earth remark by means of new transformational concepts, and deciding on, maturing, testing, and nurturing essentially the most promising ideas.
Whereas that is ESA’s tenth Space App Camp, it’s the first time that the camp is providing an enhanced mentorship program, which entails a complete studying and cellular software program growth scheme unfold over the eight weeks, and which is supported by consultants in Earth remark, synthetic intelligence, mental property safety and enterprise growth.
The winners will probably be rewarded with money prizes of as much as €2500 and a singular Earth remark assist package deal to permit them to proceed engaged on their profitable App concept. They may also be invited to take part to ESA’s Φ-week and Living Planet Symposium, with all prices coated.
There may be additionally a singular prize of an Earth remark assist package deal value about €3500. This contains technical Earth remark knowledge consultancy, eight hours of software program engineering providers, entry to a world community of Earth remark consultants in utilized and technical fields and assist from skilled ESA enterprise builders.
Carlos García, a part of the 2020 profitable staff, says, “The ESA Area App Camp is a terrific alternative to create an app from scratch whereas being suggested by first-level professionals. Though every little thing was digital in my yr, it was a improbable studying expertise to dam per week and be dedicated to producing a significant app.”
The deadline for utility is July 8, 2021. college students, entrepreneurs, researchers, builders and economists can register online as people or groups (of as much as 4 folks). This yr’s version is particularly searching for members with profiles in cellular app growth, Earth remark purposes growth, machine studying and synthetic intelligence and enterprise growth.
As much as 25 members will probably be chosen to participate within the 8-week-long mentoring program from July 20 to September 20, 2021, that includes devoted bi-weekly studying and growth periods.
For the reason that Area App Camp’s inception 10 years in the past, round 480 builders from 30 international locations have utilized to take part and greater than 60 purposes have been developed. A few of these have already discovered their means into commercially viable purposes.
