Free Idea: Enhancing Astronaut Photography of Earth
Beta version. May contain bad ideas.
By a free idea I mean something that I think is probably fun and probably possible but that I don’t have the combination of time, skill, energy, patience, etc. to do myself. I hope someone does this. I hope someone reads this and does just the specific part that they’re interested in. I’m trying to get the idea out there without giving the impression that it’s my project. It’s just an idea.
To do the whole thing as laid out here I think you’d need at least an intermediate understanding of convolutional neural networks for image processing, access to a GPU, some sense of geography and astronomy (to gut-check your intermediate results), and a reasonable internet connection to download the images.
