Citizen-Science Project to Help NASA Train Machines

Students can become Feature Hunters and help NASA researchers create a machine-learning algorithm to identify surface features in photographs of Earth taken by astronauts in space. NASA has more than 3 million astronaut photos of Earth, many of which have not been examined. Students can help identify glaciers, volcanoes, cities, islands, and more by drawing boxes around them in the photos. Their input will then be used to help train machine-learning models to identify the same geographic features in other NASA astronaut photos of Earth. When the machine-learning models are trained, they will be used to automatically examine millions of photos. An online tutorial explains how students can help identify Earth’s features.
