How does a photo of an onion in Delhi translate into countrywide price inflation? Conversely, how can a video from 500 miles above the Earth’s surface shed light on a humanitarian crisis unfolding in West Africa? From the proliferation of high-res photography on millions of smartphones worldwide to real-time video of the Earth’s surface from space, rapid advancements in imaging are not only changing how we share stories about the world around us, but tearing open an entirely new source of data.
Premise co-founder David Soloff teams up with Skybox Imaging co-founder Ching-Yu Hu for a panel moderated Harper Levine of Harper's Books to discuss how advances in imaging and technology are converging to unlock an entirely new stream of information. They’ll discuss the collection of image-based data streams from store shelves to space, and how they distill this data into transparent insights across a myriad of fields from macroeconomics and disaster relief to the global transport of goods.
