AI for Earth

spoke on a green mountain

With the rapid urbanization in the U.S., urban fires impose increasing threats to public safety and the livability of cities. Dr. Yihong Yuan from the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, and Computer Science faculty Dr. Ziliang Zong, received an "AI for Earth" grant from Microsoft to explore how human-environment interaction may impact the occurrence of fire incidents. This project will conduct machine learning and spatial-temporal point pattern analysis using Microsoft Azure cloud to improve the prediction of urban fire incidents.
