IBM and Hugging Face release AI foundation model for climate science

In a bid to democratise access to AI technology for climate science, IBM and Hugging Face have announced the release of the watsonx.ai geospatial foundation model.

The geospatial model, built from NASA's satellite data, will be the largest of its kind on Hugging Face and marks the first-ever open-source AI foundation model developed in collaboration with NASA.

Jeff Boudier, head of product and growth at Hugging Face, highlighted the importance of information sharing and...

AI provides imaging solution for the Moon’s shadowy craters

The Moon

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (MPS) in Germany have published a paper highlighting their AI solution for imaging the Moon’s shadowed craters.

HORUS (Hyper-effective nOise Removal U-net Software) is a machine learning algorithm that enables these dark craters to be mapped out at far higher resolutions than ever before.

The software uses more than 70,000 calibration images taken on the dark side of the Moon by NASA’s Lunar...
