Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) is gaining importance in various fields, including forestry and tree-growth modelling. However, challenges such as evaluating model interpretability, lack of transparency in some XAI methods, inconsistent terminology, and bias towards specific data types hinder its integration. In their article our colleagues Anahid Jalali, Alexander Schindler and..Read More
Anita Zolles presented the AI4Trees projects at the AI for ecosystem management conference in Palencia, Spain. Roundabout 100 researchers from 5 continents where meeting and discussing AI for sustainable management of forest ecosystems.
Cool project ideas within the FFG AI for Green funding frame, with great networking and discussions! AI4Trees was likewise presented at the event.
AI4Trees project team successfully held a workshop on “Data Science for Sustainable Forestry” at the iDSC 2023 (https://idsc.at/) in Krems. Together with the audience, we explored challenges and ways on how data science and machine learning can support to make forest management more sustainable.
GeoVille organized a workshop on Earth Observation (EO) Data and Forest Disturbance Mapping. What EO can we access, what are the benefits? On spatial and temporal resolution, forest disturbance and single tree mapping.
Changing climatic circumstances have a significant impact on forests: besides higher temperatures, more intense and frequent storms and drought spells affect forest growth. To see what the future is bringing, and to be able to deal with forest conservation and management, it is necessary to answer the question “how quickly..Read More
An overview of the work package 6 activities was given on this day. Focus: Active Explainable Data Quality Enhancement on Higher Frequency Data.
ENERO is the European Network of Environmental Research Organisations (https://enero.vito.be/en). Its members are Research and Technology Organisations (RTOs) doing research with an environmental focus at the interface of public authorities (national and European) and industry. #AI4Trees was presented to the members at the ENERO General Assembly Meeting 2022 in Brussels.
Changing climatic circumstances have a significant impact on forests: besides higher temperatures, more intensive and frequent storms and drought spells are major challenges for forest conservation and management in the future. European Forests have been a significant carbon sink within the last decades, allowing for natural carbon dioxide removal from..Read More
Tree circumference can be used to draw many conclusions about tree health and growth. In the course of the #AI4Trees project, researchers are now trying to better understand the natural processes behind this using artificial intelligence. The aim is not only to investigate extreme events, but also to identify important..Read More
