Too Long; Didn't Read
Wildfires are more and more present in modern society, mainly caused by heat waves, lightning, droughts, climate change, or even human actions like car fires and cigarette butts. But thanks to AI, we may be able to spot these fires much sooner and take action sooner. Artificial intelligence can be used to reduce fire detection time from an average of 40 minutes to less than five minutes! The most common problem is that they are spotted too late and already widely spread out. It's such a cool and practical application of AI, and it has already been deployed in Brazil.
