  • 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.  

    This live event includes a 15-minute networking event hosted on the AI for Good Neural Network. This is your opportunity to ask questions, interact with the panelists and participants and build connections with the AI for Good community.
