Earth’s climate is changing. IBM’s new geospatial foundation model could help track and adapt to a new landscape. Designed to enable first steps toward this goal by converting NASA’s satellite observations into customized maps of natural disasters and other environmental changes. Built from IBM’s collaboration with NASA, the watsonx.ai model is designed to convert satellite data into high-resolution maps of floods, fires, and other landscape changes to reveal our planet’s past and hint at its future. The model, part of IBM’s watsonx.ai geospatial offering, is planned to be available in preview to IBM clients through the IBM Environmental Intelligence Suite during the second half of this year.
