During the Big Data Conference on December 3-4, 2020 we will have several interesting invited speakers, one of them is Johan Thor, Head of data science at Södra.

Johan Thor will talk about how the small European bark beetle, less than half a centimeter long, gets visible from space via satellite images, or rather; its effects. The bark beetle infests and kills large amounts of spruces, not only in Sweden, to large economic amounts. Today, we have limited possible actions to take in order to prevent further infestation and he will describe how Södra teamed up with a Dutch startup in order to explore a new way to fight back!
