Grant Activity:
Bushfire resilience, fuelled by artificial intelligence and citizen science
Purpose:
In the 2019–20 fire season, over 10 million ha burnt, destroying over 2000 homes. The cost to Australia was estimated to run into the billions and has had a devastating impact on the agriculture, forestry and tourism industries. There are currently limited resources to support accurate prediction and effective response to large–scale fire events. This project involves the design and implementation of NOBURN, a citizen scientist app to capture photo evidence of fuel–loads, dryness and structure of forests. Artificial intelligence tools will be used to predict the probability, severity and burn area of potential bushfires based on images submitted. The outcomes will assist in disaster resilience, preparedness and response to bushfires.
