Launched in July, the “AI Moonshot Challenge” contest runs until October 4, announced Portugal Space, one of the promoters.
The best tender proposal, which combines satellite data and artificial intelligence to detect, characterize and quantify plastics in the oceans, but also rivers or lakes, will be known at the technological event Web Summit, scheduled for between December 2-4, in Lisbon.
Universities, scientific laboratories, private or public non-profit organizations dedicated to scientific research and companies can participate in the competition.
