Migel Tissera on Using AI to Manage Image Data for Space Exploration and More

Moondust, minerals and soil varieties are just some of the products that can be swiftly recognized and analyzed with AI based mostly on their visuals.

Migel Tissera is co-founder and CTO of Metaspectral, a Vancouver-primarily based startup that offers an AI-dependent info administration and analysis platform for extremely-superior-resolution pictures.

He spoke with NVIDIA AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about how Metaspectral’s technologies aid place explorers make quicker and improved use of the massive amounts of graphic information they acquire out in the cosmos.

In addition to space, the startup’s platform is made use of throughout industries such as agriculture, forensics and recycling.


Key Details From This Episode:

  • Hyperspectral imaging collects and procedures info from across the electromagnetic spectrum, pixel by pixel. It can be utilized to find objects or determine materials — like moondust, which informs where on the lunar floor an astronaut could land.
  • Analyzing such ultra-high-resolution illustrations or photos can be tricky and sluggish, because of to their substantial quantities of facts. Metaspectral’s AI-based resolution compresses knowledge up to 90 p.c even though sustaining its integrity. This allows the facts to be transmitted from house to earth, processed by a significant-compute program and sent back again to users for authentic-time motion.


“We have to come up with really great technologies that can competently use facts inside of an allocated time frame.” — Migel Tissera [2:40]

By capturing the complete spectrum of mild for every pixel, “you can figure out the fundamental content of that pixel and map the geological development.” — Migel Tissera [5:04]
