We "Love Where We Live" and are living true to the recommendations of a local elder (which became a founding principle of our nonprofit organization): "Well being is nourished by being accountable to a people and a place.." As a part of the Guadalupe Historic District, Community Learning Network (CLN) has been involved in a wide range of neighborhood revitalization and community-building efforts including repainting of the murals in Montano Park with Carlos Cervantes and heaps of volunteers, as well as co-hosting neighborhood activities. Now, we are also supporting the launch of the Guadalupe Street Association and are participating in and documenting the community meetings taking place, plus we even built a website for the project.

Descartes Labs is a successful Tech start-up that is moving into the renovated bank building on the corner of West Alameda and Guadalupe Street! Welcome to the neighborhood! According to Crunchbase: "Descartes Labs began as a spin-out from Los Alamos National Laboratory in April of 2015. The underlying technology uses computer vision, machine learning, and cloud-based infrastructure to teach computers to see and understand the world around them. Initially, the technology was applied to develop an agricultural model to analyze corn and soy production in the United States. Using imagery from various satellite constellations, weather data, and other datasets, the model accurately predicted yield six months prior to the end of the growing season. Realizing the potential for the technology applied to use cases around the globe, Descartes Labs turned its focus to developing a cloud-based supercomputing platform for the application of machine intelligence to massive data sets. This platform could be used by anyone to develop intelligent learning models to do science on data, and make that data actionable." "By collecting, normalizing, and presenting science-ready data generated by satellites, the Descartes Labs Platform is advancing and accelerating unique applications of machine intelligence for consumers, corporations, and governments worldwide. Descartes Labs is headquartered in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with offices in San Francisco, Los Alamos, and New York City."
