The increasing severity of global climatic disasters in recent years has highlighted the importance of advanced data analysis for effective disaster prediction and management. A significant player in this arena is Big Data. As we generate massive amounts of data daily, harnessing this Big Data has become crucial to making informed decisions, especially in the face of potential disasters.
The Role of Big Data in Disaster Scenarios
Big Data refers to voluminous data sets so large and complex that they require advanced computational systems to process. These data can be both structured and unstructured, containing valuable insights. In disaster scenarios, Big Data provides the ability to predict, manage, and mitigate disasters more effectively.
The use of artificial intelligence and Machine Learning (AIML) systems can be an effective method for automating disaster response, but they need to be properly trained to interpret disasters for them to be useful.
Guest talk at the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati zoom-live session on the launch of the 2022 batch of AIML certification, addressed the questions like;
How AIML is helping this world to be a safer planet for a living?
How big is this disaster problem?
How humans have become intelligent over years by using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to handle Disasters?
How the wildfire in technologically advanced countries is getting handled or maturing to get ready to handle?
Our planet is on a brink of an environmental disaster. Global temperatures are rising, with stark consequences for many of the things that we take for granted. Advanced technological innovations like drones, artificial intelligence, machine learning, etc. are crucial for climate change mitigation.
Fortunately, there is a technology that has emerged to gather data:
For conservation projects
To support the work of environmental researchers
Playing a key role in implementing sustainable solutions
Helping in the fight against the odds created by climate effects, and
To service renewable energy infrastructure.
And it can do all of those things in a way that’s better, easier, faster, cheaper, and safer than before. We are speaking about Drones for Climate Change! These flying robots are tackling climate change from multiple angles. Improving the efficiency of solar and wind farms, protecting endangered species, and supporting the work of scientists across the world.
Drones are powering Earth’s sustainable future, and by the end of this blog, you will agree with me.
The use of drones for filmmaking and military purposes is not the only use. They help combat climate change too. And it is a very crucial shift in our technological capability for combatting climate change. Information is key, and timely received information is gold, and that’s one of the primary use cases of Drones. Besides that, drones have bigger potential and can help fight severe climate change issues.
