Space Series: PART FOUR Space Data Comes Back to Earth
Data collected in space will continue to increase in value over the next decade as volume, variety, velocity and veracity increase. What are the opportunities for organisations on Earth to enhance their operations and become more predictive rather than reactive? And with the quantity, quality and use of space data growing exponentially, how might this be regulated? pastevent

PART FOUR Space Data Comes Back to Earth


About the Webinar

KPMG’s 30 Voices on 2030: The Future of Space brings together the different perspectives of 30 senior leaders from the space industry around the world – heads of agency, engineers, lawyers, entrepreneurs and politicians – who paint a very vivid, exciting and challenging vision of what we can expect.

Join AmCham and KPMG on a limited 5-part series exploring what Space in 2030 may look like. We explore the potential of space to open up to new businesses and customers, create new products and services and speak to our sense of curiosity and desire to understand the world beyond our planet. Organisations across different industries – and not just traditional space industry players - that lack adaptability and imagination will be left behind.

Data collected in space will continue to increase in value over the next decade as volume, variety, velocity and veracity increase. What are the opportunities for organisations on Earth to enhance their operations and become more predictive rather than reactive? And with the quantity, quality and use of space data growing exponentially, how might this be regulated?
