Dear CIRFA Team and friends, we welcome you to this week`s talk by David Arthurs, Managing Director at Polar View.

The Polar Thematic Exploitation Platform (Polar TEP) provides a complete working environment where users can access algorithms and data remotely, providing computing resources and tools that they might not otherwise have, avoiding the need to download and manage large volumes of data. This new approach removes the need to transfer large Earth Observation data sets around the world, while increasing the analytical power available to researchers and operational service providers.

Monitoring of the polar regions using machine learning is supported by the advance computing infrastructure of Polar TEP that hosts training data, algorithms, and results; provides a polar machine learning community discussion forum; and provides machine learning computation resources.  Polar TEP has implemented the MLflow platform to support machine learning activities.  MLflow is an open-source platform to manage all stages of the ML lifecycle, including experimentation, reproducibility, deployment, and a central model registry.

The Polar TEP demonstration will provide a high-level introduction to all the platform’s capabilities and then focus on the machine learning functionality and an upcoming machine learning for sea ice charting challenge sponsored the European Space Agency.
