“The winner will receive a $5,000 cash prize to support their work and recognition across our community of practice for their outstanding contribution to problem-solving.”

The Radiant MLHub Impact Award is a new annual prize organized by Radiant Earth Foundation. The award will recognize an individual or team contributing to real-world applications that address agriculture issues with geospatial training data found on Radiant MLHub. Launched in 2019, Radiant MLHub is an open library dedicated to Earth observation training data and machine learning models.

The Radiant MLHub Impact Award aims to raise awareness about geospatial data to tackle the urgent challenges of climate change, promote local solutions to local problems, and facilitate greater collaboration across organizations and individual practitioners. Over 3,500 practitioners use Radiant MLHub to support their work building applications that monitor agriculture, conservation, climate change, and more. The Radiant MLHub Award will recognize and showcase these innovative uses and solutions, and inspire others to collaborate openly across the climate solutions community.

The inaugural Radiant MLHub Impact Award will be given for work in the realm of Sustainable Agriculture in Africa. The winner will receive a $5,000 cash prize to support their work and recognition across our community of practice for their outstanding contribution to problem-solving.
