Artificial Intelligence: Fully Autonomous Greenhouses In the Realm of Reality

June 22, 2020

Ever-increasing populations, less and less arable land, and climatic changes make it increasingly difficult for the planet’s food producers to keep up with demand. Fresh, sustainable food needs to be put on millions of tables and there is a great need to develop new methods for cultivation. Greenhouses and indoor cultivation will become commonplace. AI and machine learning can be deployed with great results in these spaces.

Artificial Intelligence: The Menace of Sea Ice, and Faster Warnings by AI

June 19, 2020

Artificial Intelligence: The U.K. Arms Itself With AI to Combat Invasive Plant Species

June 17, 2020

Invasive plant species cost the U.K. economy an estimated £1.7 billion annually. Though about 3,000 alien plant species are found in the country, only 234 of them are currently considered a threat to its ecosystem. These harmful species have properties such as the ability to reproduce rampantly, or to spread themselves across a range of habitats. In so doing, they develop an edge over native flora. The U.K. is now taking recourse to AI to counter these disruptive aliens called Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS).

Artificial Intelligence: Satellites and AI Could Together Predict Wildfires Accurately

June 3, 2020

Traditional methods of predicting wildfires relied upon how much dry vegetation was present in an area, or in other words, the “fuel” that could trigger and sustain a wildfire. Scientists also looked at how dry the landscape was. These methods were chancy at best, and difficult to assess quickly enough across large areas. However, the analysis of satellite images with the help of artificial intelligence offers hope for a more reliable and faster prediction of wildfires.
