1 juillet, 2022 à 2:00 – 3:00 CEST
Présentation par Jerry Zeyu Gao de la San Jose State University aux Etats-Unis
Vendredi 1er juillet à 14h, Jerry Zeyu Gao présentera le séminaire ayant pour thème « Real-Time Intelligent Wildfire Platform – Wildfire Big Data and Machine Learning ».
Ce dernier est un professeur invité du laboratoire et travaille pendant trois semaines avec Oum-El-Kheir. Les discussions pourront être poursuivies au delà du séminaire pendant la pause café hebdomadaire.
Abstract: Wildfires in recent years have destroyed communities, caused server damage to property and human life, and living environment. There were 3,356 fires during the last decade (2009 – 2018), which is 1.4 times greater than the per-decade average number of fires between 1979 and 2009. Total acres burned in the last decade reached 7.08 million acres, which is 1.6 times larger than average per-decade burn area. According to a recent report, there will be increasing trend on wildfires in California in the near future. This brings an urgent call for more researchers in studying and developing new machine learning models based on big data to build next-generation intelligent wildfire platforms and systems to support historical and daily wildfire risk analysis, real-time wildfire detection and tracking, and accurate regional wildfire progression forecast and alerting.
In this talk, Dr. Gao will report the current state-of-the-art research work on wildfire study and analysis using big data and machine learning, including wildfire risk analysis and prediction, detection and tracking, as well as progression forecasting. The talk first reviews and reports current existing wildfire research and systems in a comparative way. Next, it covers diverse wildfire big data and preprocessing for current wildfire research including wildfire history records, satellite images, remote sensing data, drone/aerial camera/LiDAR data, as well as weather station and ground fire sensor datasets. Furthermore, Dr. Gao will present an on-building intelligent wildfire platform, including big data collection and processing, wildfire machine learning models and solutions, system infrastructure and components, and evaluation results. Finally, the future wildfire research topics, challenges and needs are discussed and presented.
