Using Deep Learning to Reduce Wildfire Risk
Wildfires can pose particular dangers to both lives and property because they often begin unnoticed and can spread quickly. According to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety, windborne embers present a significant threat from wildfires and are the primary cause of most building ignitions. Advances in Deep Learning have shown steps that can be taken to identify these threats.
