Meeting with IBM

Matt, Allison, and Peter had a meeting with Laura, Kent, and David from IBM Research Australia on 18th November. They discussed David’s work on generating fire danger map and optimizing sensor placement on the danger map. David has finished his internship in IBM with excellent outcomes. He generated a fire danger map for the Mount Dandenong region using the IBM Evacuation Planner. The map describes the potential lost of lives given an ignition location. Then he proposed a sensor placement algorithm based on the fire danger map. David will start a new internship in Google soon. We wish all the best to his future career. RISER and IBM will continue this collaboration to extend David’s work for a journal publication.
