Sara Silva and Nuno C. Garcia in Global Challenges short video series

Date: 20/11/2023

Ciências ULisboa is challenging its researchers to explain how their specialised work is relevant in the larger context. In a new series of short videos called Global Challenges, the faculty researchers are invited to share the reach of the knowledge produced by their work.

Two members of LASIGE, Sara Silva and Nuno C. Garcia, are featured in the series. In her video, Sara Silva explains how she uses her research in machine learning to forest monitoring with satellite images, an essential tool for the UN’s sustainable development programs. With Nuno Garcia, we learn how his work on neural networks can help analyse diverse types of images, such as biomedic and aerial images. You can watch their videos on the Ciências ULisboa YouTube channel, here (Silva) and here (Garcia).
