Building a Better World from Outer Space

A discussion on the ways that data is being collected and systems are being supported from new, smaller, more affordable innovations in space. From more accurate hurricane forecasting to better carbon footprint monitoring to forest fire prevention, many of human “blind spots” can be monitored, controlled, and prevented from above. In this session, industry experts from the public and private sector will focus on the ways in which new technology and partnerships can help shape a more stable world.
