We can’t change our past or the damage we have done to our forests, but #MicrosoftAI is giving us the opportunity to make sure that each step we take in the future is a step towards sustainability.

Analyzing data has given us a better understanding of everything from consumer behavior to production efficiencies. In short, data helps us manage and direct our resources in the most efficient and effective ways possible.

Through Microsoft’s AI for Good initiative, SilviaTerra has created the first high-resolution inventory of all US forests. What’s next on their list? Democratizing that information to help all communities sustainably manage their precious natural resources. Check out this video to learn more about the incredible impact SilviaTerra is already having on one Pennsylvanian watershed

What if we applied this same strategy to our forests? While they may not be made up of code, AI technology is allowing us to track and understand our forests and other natural resources like never before. With this understanding comes the same opportunity for more efficient management.

At ENTRUST Technology Consulting Services, we look forward to hearing more stories like this one as AI continues to open new doors for beneficial innovation. What doors might AI open for your business?
