On Amazon Fires: "We're on the Edge of a Cliff"

"We're at this stage because we've treated the earth like a resource to be exploited for profit," argues Paul Paz y Miño, associate director of Amazon Watch. Fires in the Amazon are waking people up to the need for a radical change in how we value nature -- going beyond its economic worth or carbon sequestration potential.

Fighting wildfires with intelligent robots | AI for Good Webinar

721 views  Streamed live on Jan 18, 2023 

Climate change and land-use change are increasing the number, frequency, and severity of wildfires worldwide, with a projected 30% rise by the end of 2050. With global temperatures soaring, the need to reduce the risk of wildfires is more important than ever to protect the health of people and ecosystems.

Facing this challenge, robots are increasingly helping first responders to detect, monitor and extinguish flames. They are helping to combat blazes in buildings with the possibility of collapsing roofs, and in areas too hot or toxic for human entry and survival. In this AI for Good webinar, discover the next generation of autonomous firefighting robots that work side by side with emergency workers on the front line, reducing risks for firefighters and helping them identify, control and extinguish wildfires with increased safety for humans.  

Speakers:

Manon Vermenouze, Director of Communications, Public Affairs, and CSR Shark Robotics

Bart Slager CEO Perspective Robotics

Wade White, Assistant Chief, Los Angeles City Fire Department

Arunima Sarkar, World Economic Forum (WEF)
