Sberbank backs hackathon using AI to tackle wildfires

Sberbank is teaming up with the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations to host a hackathon where contestants will use machine learning and AI in the fight against wildfires.

The open, online competition on 1 December will see participants develop a solution for automatic classification of fire types based on temperature anomalies data received from satellites.

This information could be used to identify possible areas where forest fires occur and let stakeholders react quickly to prevent emergencies, say the organisers.

Explaining its part in the event, Sberbank says that it could end up using the image recognition technology involved for its own "business goals".
