Collaborative research on fire intensity model with IBM

Sarah and Peter had a meeting with Laura Rusu and Ziyuan Wang from IBM Research Australia on 10th June to discuss collaboration on integrating Sarah’s fire intensity model and data collected by RISER (MoistuRISER and UpRISER) into IBM’s wildfire system. IBM has developed a system which provides diverse information pertaining to wildfire, like wildfire hazard and prediction of fire propagation. Adding Sarah’s fire intensity model will allow the IBM system to estimate the damage of wildfires on houses. RISER data streams are expected to improve the performance of Sarah’s model. Further discussion meetings have been arranged to plan the details of this collaboration.
