Global Geo-Intelligence Solutions has been awarded an AI for Earth grant from Microsoft to help further our efforts in supporting vulnerable farming communities to be more resilient to the negative impact of environmental related events.
This new grant will provide GGIS with the cloud computing, AI, mapping and visualization tools, to accelerate our work on the project titled: "The Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to Predict the Risk of Desert Locust Infestation in North West Africa and the Moruga Locust in Trinidad and Tobago". This project focuses on data modelling in agriculture, where there is the challenge to provide food for an increasing global population. Thus, there is the need to reduce the amount of food wastage due to the impact of crop pests and diseases.
AI for Earth is a $50 million, 5-year program that brings the full advantage of Microsoft technology to those working to solve global environmental challenges in the key focus areas of climate, agriculture, water and biodiversity. Through grants that provide access to cloud and AI tools, opportunities for education and training on AI, and investments in innovative, scalable solutions, AI for Earth works to advance sustainability across the globe.
Global Geo-Intelligence Solutions is one of the newest organizations to be recognized by Microsoft for its impact and potential, and will join a growing number of AI for Earth grantees worldwide.
