Fire seasons are running longer, stronger, hotter.
The trend is not going away. More firefighting equipment are, of course, needed. With the situation seemingly getting worse and not better, how can we turn a losing battle on its head?
We decided to run a crowdsourcing effort.
Let's start a Cooperative work to accomplish shared goals, gathering and collaborating on innovation ideas. To create discussion to disseminate the adoption of new breakthrough technology. In a process of looking at forest fire in a new and unorthodox way, to provide new solutions.
The forestfirehub.com Hackathon Challenge is a Virtual Collaboration open to anyone with innovative concepts willing to revolutionise the current state of forest fire fighting.
An evaluation of mathematical models using Machine Learning. Creating virtual environments to modeling and problem solving.
