Artificial Intelligence for the Planet: When Clean Technology Meets Data Science
Ecoinformatics is an exciting new field that marries clean technology and data science. It's when sensors are used to improve water conservation or when satellite data predicts forest fire outbreaks or when social media is used to build smart cities.
Some of the hottest and most amazing applications in either Clean Tech or Big Data are being built at the intersection of the two fields - in Ecoinformatics. There's an incredibly diverse ecosystem growing every day, with companies of all sizes, governments and individuals building amazing things. For people who want to make a difference and solve the problems facing the Earth and humanity today, this is where it all comes together.
