Can you tell your forest from plantation? Computers can now!

Artificial Intelligence can now instantly tell us where deforestation is taking place! Machine learning is allowing computers to scan satellite images and delineate forest from farm. This would take humans thousands of hours of work, by which time the forests would be gone. 

JDN organised its first workshop on Tuesday 25th of July with Dominique Herman and Rob McWilliam from The Forest Trust. Participants had the chance to test their hand at forest mapping.
