Intelligence from Telemetry applied to Wildfire management and other applications.
Research in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence has been applied to image recognition. Weather modeling and prediction make use of distributed computing. Forestry research produces ground cover models and economic value predictions. These active research disciplines are all implicated in the emerging area of big data analytics as applied to the needs of the industrial partner: Tanka is advancing integrated analytics, bridging research in these fields to ingest maximally relevant data to produce valuable information for a variety of applications. Significant economic and social impact is expected as Tanka applies the research results first to early forest fire detection, and these advantages will carry over to adjacent areas such as ship detection at sea.
