powered by Surfing Waves

“Data from satellites, software-enabled AI can predict the location, speed, and direction of fire-prone conditions. An AI algorithm can then confirm fires once they exist, where it will spread, and what fuel or accelerants are in its pathway. It can relay that information in minutes. That allows fire commanders to immediately start moving assets into place with a rapid mobilization.” — Amber Smith, RealClear Defense
