Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Disruptive Tech

Posted in

The Earth Observation – Disruptive Technology and New Space ( is a mini MOOC from ESA. It consists of a series of interviews with leading experts across Earth Observation and related technologies. The explosion in EO data from the Sentinel programme, a new generation of commercial satellites, and emerging constellations of small-sats, has created one of the greatest “big data” challenges in the world today. This course explores technologies such as AI, 3D data visualisation, cloud computing technologies and blockchain, and how they are meeting the needs of the ever-growing data analytics and data navigation challenges in EO.

The course is composed of four modules: 1) AI, Big Data Analytics and Data Visualisation, 2) The New “Internet of Data”, 3) EO – What comes next… and 4) Responding to Digital Trends.
