Hi! We’re a group of Computer Scientists and Mathematicians working on an application to predict wildfires using machine learning and data analysis! We worked on the application part-time for 2 months, we were invited to Finland for the NASA Europa Challenge finals and we also won the Research Council UK’s Smart Cities Entrepeneurship Prize! Currently, we’re working with Greenpeace Russia to expand our application to several high risk areas in Russia, Brazil and Indonesia to hopefully help them prevent wildfires and save lives! We’re here to talk about our experience, answer any questions people might have and talk about what we plan on doing going forward. Questions will be answered by team members Vishal Soomaney, Peter Jupp and Flinn Dolman, we will be back at 10 am ET to answer your questions, AMA!
