This website represents the scientific activities of the AI4RS (artificial intelligence for remote sensing) team. AI4RS is led by Pedram Ghamisi [Link] who works as (1) head of the machine learning group (FWGE-L) at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Germany (HZDR) and (2) visiting research professor and leader of AI4RS at the Institute of Advanced Research in Artificial Intelligence (IARAI), Austria.

The topics we cover:

  • Trustworthy AI for Earth observation

  • AI for social good

  • Explainable AI

  • Deep learning and its applications to, e.g., semantic segmentation and scene classification

  • Human-in-the-loop Earth observation data analysis

  • Vision and language for Earth Observation

  • Multisensor and multitemporal data fusion

  • Adversarial attacks and defenses

  • Domain adaptation and transfer learning

  • Weakly supervised learning

  • Change detection

  • Semantic segmentation and scene classification

  • Visual question answering

  • Zero- and few-shot learning
