SkyHub.org Also Begins Expanding Scientific Advisory Board
Houston—July 19, 2020— Today, Sky Hub (https://skyhub.org) announced its
academic partnership with the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (https://www.explorescu.org/) in conjunction with the addition of Mr. Christopher Cogswell, PhD as the Chair of Sky Hub’s Science Advisory Board.
Sky Hub’s Brief Project History
Founded on April 24, 2020 by Steve McDaniel (https://nibbleshift.com), Corey Gaspard (https://cgaspard.github.io), and Adam Allen (https://spacecowboyhub.com), Sky Hub seeks to become a fully global public search for UAP/UFO data through a grass-roots, volunteer-driven program. The project has grown considerably in membership since its
inception and shows no signs of slowing down.
Sky Hub was formed to support a fully modern, public search for the data signatures of UAPs in our skies by developing open source software (under the MIT License) to drive a global network of machine-learning, smart cameras and sensor-arrays—designed by Sky Hub—but built by individual participants. Given the low-cost & the capability of today’s consumer grade technology, the rapid growth and evolution of machine-learning for streamlining the analysis of large data sets, the increasing affordability of AI-ready hardware, there has never been a better time to assemble a network of smart sensors to capture these objects’ digital signatures.
Sky Hub is creating a crowd-sourced network of smart Trackers that will each recognize with “Edge Processing” whether an anomalous event has occurred. Each Tracker will automatically upload the anomalous data to the Sky Hub Cloud, where it will be recorded and kept in a publicly accessible database that Sky Hub will host. Sky Hub has determined that this data—like all data concerning the public good—should be made and kept Public and as such the digital database wi ll be free to use under the Creative Commons License BY-NC-SA (Attribution – Non Commercial – Share
Alike) which allows anyone to remix, adapt, and build upon Sky Hub’s work noncommercially.
Dr. Christopher Cogswell, PhD
On July 12, 2020 Sky Hub formed its Science Advisory Board and welcomed Dr. Cogswell as its initial Chair. Dr. Cogswell’s first tasks include interviewing and seating the additional members. Dr. Cogswell is also the host of The Mad Scientist podcast (https://www.themadscientistpodcast.com/).
The Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies
On July 15, 2020, Sky Hub also entered into an academic partnership with the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies. The partnership embodies both organizations’ agreement that the study of the UFO phenomenon must be done in a scientific manner. The partnership agreement places no requirements or obligations on either organization other than an agreement to support each other in mutually beneficial future endeavors, and to maintain close communications between the organizations.
These additional steps have been taken to ensure that the project will progress using scientifically controlled methods, and to secure and maintain objectively useful data sets for the public to utilize in analyzing UAPs.
