About This Collection

Conserving what's left, renewal, growing new ones, and hearing from the many peoples facing loss of their communities due to the mismanagement and exploitation of forests this special collection gets its start with the launch of the Global Forest Watch (GFW)

GFW is a project where the World Resource Institute brought together fourteen major sponsors, including Rebecca Moore of Google Earth who pioneered the use of mapping to protect our lands and people, enables our citizens to participate in and benefit from an "open data approach in putting decision-relevant information in the hands of governments, companies, NGOs, and the public."

Fighting wildfires with intelligent robots | AI for Good Webinar

721 views  Streamed live on Jan 18, 2023 

Climate change and land-use change are increasing the number, frequency, and severity of wildfires worldwide, with a projected 30% rise by the end of 2050. With global temperatures soaring, the need to reduce the risk of wildfires is more important than ever to protect the health of people and ecosystems.

Facing this challenge, robots are increasingly helping first responders to detect, monitor and extinguish flames. They are helping to combat blazes in buildings with the possibility of collapsing roofs, and in areas too hot or toxic for human entry and survival. In this AI for Good webinar, discover the next generation of autonomous firefighting robots that work side by side with emergency workers on the front line, reducing risks for firefighters and helping them identify, control and extinguish wildfires with increased safety for humans.
