Forest Sentinel Solution

Product by University of Leicester

Deforestation leads to the destruction of 48 football fields of forest every minute worldwide. Rapid interventions to address illegal logging are needed for large forest tracts. The University of Leicester’s Forest Sentinel solution uses cloud computing and a fully automated machine learning algorithm to detect deforestation 24 hours after the image is acquired and alert foresters via a smartphone app and dashboard. The technology is being implemented in Kenya, Colombia, Ghana, Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia and Malaysia.
