Ground-based sky cameras (popularly known as whole sky imagers) are now widely used by remote sensing analysts for understanding the earth’s atmosphere. In this work, we use high-resolution sky cameras, to accurately estimate the total solar irradiance falling on the earth’s surface. We also use such sequence of images to estimate cloud motion fields, and thereby predict future locations of cloud with a lead time of a few minutes. Such machine-learning based estimation and forecasting techniques can greatly benefit the field of solar energy generation and forecasting.
Digital Humanities is a cross disciplinary field in which computer scientists and humanities scholars work together to solve problems which are complementary to both domains. This talk will describe some of the problems faced in Digital Humanities from the perspective of a computer scientist and the various solutions which have emerged to handle the vast, complex, messy collections of data which document our cultural history.
