How Descartes Labs is teaching machines to ‘see’ the world

Mark Johnson feels the reason why Descartes Labs has grown so fast is because the geospatial world is on fire right now and there are tons of sensors going up in space — ranging from radio frequency sensors to radar sensors, and a whole host of earth observation sensors and optical sensors. “When you combine all that data with computational power you get in Cloud plus machine intelligence. We can take all those pixels and build some real value for customers. I am really excited about our prospects.”
