Azure OpenAI ChatGPT 101: Decoding AI Fundamentals and Practical Applications

By Matt Dosberg | May 15, 2023

During this session we will explore Azure OpenAI, the enterprise-grade cloud service that is based on GPT models. Specifically, we will discuss the key concepts such as GPT and Foundation Models to demystify the technical jargon to give you a clear understanding of how these AI tools function. Additionally, we will also touch on important topics such as data security and privacy within the Azure OpenAI framework. Finally, we’ll discuss real-world use cases, providing you with tangible examples of how, when and where you can effectively take advantage of Azure OpenAI to advance your missions

Revolutionizing Data Storage by Harnessing the Potential of DNA

By Matt Dosberg | April 19, 2023

The growth of the global datasphere is rapidly outpacing the available material, space, and energy for electronic storage technologies. At the current rate of data generation, Earth’s entire surface would need to be covered by data centers by the year 2060 just to store the information created between now and then. DNA data storage represents a transformative solution as an extreme-scale storage medium due to its high raw capacity, long-term durability, minimal energy usage, and eternal human relevance.

The Metaverse: What is it, and what are the implications for the Space industry?

By Matt Dosberg | March 28, 2023

The metaverse is more than just virtual reality. It is a continuum of technologies that applies across all aspects of business, from consumer to worker and across the entire enterprise; from 2D to 3D; and from cloud and artificial intelligence to extended reality, blockchain, digital twins, edge technologies and beyond. As the next evolution of the internet, the metaverse is a rapidly emerging set of capabilities, use cases, technologies and experiences. This continuum of technologies presents significant potential for the space industry. It offers a safe testing ground for new technologies and designs, enhances space education and public engagement, and expands access to space experiences. Join us to discover how the space industry should explore and embrace the potential applications of the metaverse as it develops.

Knowledge-Guided Machine Learning: A New Framework for Accelerating Scientific Discovery 

By Matt Dosberg | October 24, 2022

In real-world systems that are governed by physical processes, there is an opportunity to take advantage of fundamental physical principles to inform the search of a physically meaningful and accurate ML model.  While this talk will illustrate the potential of the knowledge-guided machine learning (KGML) paradigm in the context of environmental problems (e.g., Fresh water science, Hydrology, Agroecology), the paradigm has the potential to greatly advance the pace of discovery in a diverse set of discipline where mechanistic models are used, e.g., power engineering, climate science, weather forecasting, and pandemic management.

A knowledge commons framework for Earth and Space Science: Technical and cultural challenges and progress in Heliophysics

By Matt Dosberg | October 24, 2022

Knowledge commons are a combination of intelligent information representation with openness, governance, and trust required to create a participatory ecosystem whereby the whole community maintains and evolves the shared space together -[McGranaghan et al., 2021].

This concept is central to more cohesive communities, both within and across disciplines, open science, and robust and responsible practice of data science. We will introduce it and then highlight progress toward knowledge commons within Heliophysics. This talk will highlight progress toward the Heliophysics KNOWledge Network (Helio-KNOW), specifically focusing on the efforts to represent Heliophysics knowledge. It will emphasize efforts of a Heliophysics Digital Resource Library sprint activity in 2022 to extend the coverage of Heliophysics in the NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) that was generative of general-purpose approaches and tools that are important to all disciplines. We highlight the semantic technologies, or tools to represent the meaning in our data and information, being built for: 1) Heliophysics phenomena; 2) scientific literature; and 3) community.

Space ROS and its Potential for Space Robotics

By Matt Dosberg | October 24, 2022

Robots are becoming an indispensable tool in space exploration. Traditionally, these systems were developed using custom, proprietary software written for each application and hardware platform. Meanwhile, the broader robotics community has standardized on ROS, an open-source platform for building robotics applications. Now the space industry is following suit by developing Space ROS, which will allow ROS to be qualified for space applications and reused across missions, saving development effort and speeding up robotic space exploration. In this session, learn about Space ROS and its potential for space robotics.

The Future Is Above Clouds

By Matt Dosberg | October 24, 2022

We need an open-source universal control plane that will set the standard of how cloud vendors operate and how their services can be mixed and modeled to our specific needs. Crossplane (an open-source project) might be such a solution.
