3-in-1 Turnkey AI Biodiversity-Care Service

Our biodiversity is magnificent and full of wonders.

With increasing climate risks, surging biodiversity crisis, growing stakeholder expectations, and greater regulatory demands, businesses and individuals must act now to help society to transition to a more sustainable world and protect our nature.

The WWF Living Planet Report 2022 alarms the world that we lost 69% wildlife population in the last 50 years!

We’re facing a serious biodiversity crisis, and climate change is a major cause. Climate change brings more and bigger wildfires, which generate large amounts of carbon emissions, kill thousands of people, cause huge financial losses, and destroy biodiversity. Wildfires create many losers.

However, there are winners using technology to fight the forest fire battle. One of them is the Uruguay Fire Department. They use our LookOut AI Wildfire Detection Service to mitigate wildfire risks and damages.

Another winner is WWF Hong Kong. They are running a machine vision pilot project in Mai Po Nature Reserve to detect wildfires, find endangered birds, and stream live videos to bring the beauty of nature to more people.

The AI system they are using is our new LookOut AI Biodiversity-Care Service (also known as the ABC service), a 3-in-1 turnkey solution to sustainably manage forests and biodiversity. The service comprises three components :

  • AI wildfire detection
  • AI bird detection and counting
  • Live video streaming with autotracking

We deployed the ABC pilot in May 2022. During the last 12 months, ABC detected a wildfire outbreak near a mountain top 8km away in late January.

In March, ABC detected Black-faced Spoonbills in the Mai Po Nature Reserve. Great Egrets, Little Egrets, Grey Herons and Great Cormorants appeared frequently in the fishpond next to the surveillance camera. We were excited to find Black-faced Spoonbills. We used ABC AI bird counting feature to determine the number of Black-faced Spoonbills in the fishpond.

ABC livestreamed the video captured by the surveillance camera to YouTube. We invited a selected group of users to evaluate the video streaming performance and the feedback was promising.

ABC captures precious moments of those lovely animals and brings them to users’ fingertips! The livestreaming helps stakeholders to engage with the biodiversity in real-time.

Yet the nature is actually not far from each one of us. For in the nature we live and move and have our being.

It is time to put technology to work for the planet. Join us. Together we build a more sustainable world, faster.
