MIT Tech Review: Crystal Ball for Corn Crop Yields Will Revolutionize Commodity Trading.

October 28, 2017

Last week, we attended the FIA's annual expo to share the work we're doing using satellite remote sensing and machine learning to drive value in agricultural commodities markets. At the end of the Expo, we were awarded the 2017 FIA Innovator of the Year award! It was a fantastic week overall and we're looking forward to continuing the awesome dialogue with the futures community.

Here's a video of David's award-winning presentation and here's another one for the awards presentation!

From the press release: "TellusLabs went through a competitive application process in which more than 60 applications were winnowed down to 19 FinTech companies chosen to exhibit at the largest gathering of cleared derivatives professionals in the world.  TellusLabs was then chosen to participate on a panel with four other companies in which each business presented their products and services to a panel of independent judges with expertise in financial markets technology and venture capital investing.  The judges unanimously chose TellusLabs for their innovative approach to predicting crop yields through a combination of earth imaging data and machine learning."
