[FDL in the news] Using deep learning to build better moon maps
NASA’s Frontier Development Lab collects a lot of data. It’s one of the main things it does when it’s not landing things on other things. But actually deriving useful information from all the data it collects is another issue entirely, so it has begun enlisting some big tech names like Intel to crunch some of those numbers. That partnership includes Nervana, the deep learning startup the chip maker acquired back in 2016, which it’s leveraging to translate those numbers into useful information.
