Data will be the great enabler of new technologies, new products, and new businesses of our generation. Descartes is building a data-refinery on a cloud-based supercomputer for the application of machine intelligence to massive data sets.
By teaching computers to see, we create the infrastructure and services needed to model — and predict changes in — natural resources and the entire value chains in which they live. We enable businesses to better apply insights from data - both their own and external sources - across sectors ranging from energy and agriculture to large scale industrial and government. Our mission is to better understand the planet, for good and for profit, so our team of applied scientists also does impact science work around natural disasters, the spread of disease, and food security.
Today, Descartes Labs is using it’s data refinery for satellite imagery. Applying machine intelligence to sensor data, we processes data from the major NASA and ESA satellite constellations at scale, unlocking pristine images of the entire world via a searchable, on-demand interface. to understand the world in a whole new way. We are headquartered in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and have offices in New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and Los Alamos, New Mexico.
