AI Use Case

Assess environmental health status and bio-diversity of natural sites

Using cameras to take photos of environmentally sensitive sites - whether above or below the waves - which can then be analysed, and the contents of pictures classified, to estimate their overall health status. Issues that might be included would be bio-diversity of flora and health status of things like coral. Future iterations might assess small creatures - fish or insects - to add depth to the calculations.
