AI for Earth technical resources
We develop open-source tools, models, infrastructure, data, and APIs to accelerate technology development for environmental sustainability.
ThermaFY develops software that can analyze heat patterns by pairing thermal cameras with machine learning. Thermal data insights can help us identify and understand temperature conditions – whether the challenge is patients with a fever, or livestock health, or energy waste in buildings.
World Mosquito Program
The World Mosquito Program uses Microsoft Azure to model population areas and determine the best release sites for disease-fighting mosquitos to stop the spread of deadly dengue fever.
The Ocean Cleanup
The Ocean Cleanup uses machine learning to identify plastic pollution in rivers and simulate how it moves in the ocean. These insights power passive cleanup systems to help remove plastic that impacts our ecosystems.
Zooniverse engages people in science with crowd-based research projects. They use Microsoft Azure to store and organize data for projects across disciplines, including astronomy, zoology, cancer research, climate science, and arts and humanities.
