Artificial Intelligence: Leveraging Tech for Transparency and Impact

Artificial Intelligence: Creating Transparency with Data

At Play It Green, we don’t just tip our hat to transparency – it’s the core of our mission and today we look at how we use artificial intelligence to help. As our community members actively participate in planet repair through initiatives like reforestation and seaforestation, we understand the importance of clear, trustworthy insights into these efforts.

With every new member joining our green journey, our collective impact on the planet grows, highlighting the power of community in fostering significant environmental change. In this spirit, we’re excited to share an inspiring development from our tree-planting partner that perfectly embodies our commitment to innovation and transparency.

Artificial Intelligence: At the Forefront of Global Discussions

Earlier this month, the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, set the stage for discussions on major global issues, including the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in shaping our economy and society. These conversations are crucial as they outline strategies for tackling climate, nature, and energy challenges. Our tree planting partner, Veritree, is playing a pivotal role in this arena, integrating AI into their systems to revolutionise how we assess the growth and survivability of trees.

Artificial Intelligence: Revolutionising Reforestation with AI

Gone are the days of slow, manual methodologies. Our planting partner has pioneered the use of computer vision and AI to transform tree survival evaluations. This innovative approach, developed in collaboration with the University of British Columbia, utilises Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) to analyse over 25,000 photos. The goal? To identify living and dead trees at different growth stages, initially focusing on mangroves with images captured by our planting partners in Kenya.

Artificial Intelligence: Beyond Survival Rates

But it’s not just about survival rates. Our AI-driven approach aims to gather comprehensive data on each tree, including species, leaf counts, tree height, and planting density. This wealth of information will not only enhance our understanding of reforestation efforts but also pave the way for broader applications in North America and Rwanda.

Artificial Intelligence: A Commitment to Sustainable Forest Management

This scientific methodology is more than a technological breakthrough; it’s a commitment to sustainable forest management. By accurately identifying trees and estimating survival rates, we can ensure the concepts of additionality and permanence in carbon sequestration. It’s about instilling confidence in our restoration interventions and proving the tangible impact of our collective efforts.

Artificial Intelligence: The Future is Green and AI-Driven

As we embrace technologies like Generative AI, we’re not just enhancing the efficiency of monitoring reforestation; we’re also nurturing more resilient and sustainable forest ecosystems. This journey with Veritree is just the beginning, and we’re excited to share more as their research and methodologies evolve.

Artificial Intelligence: Wrap Up

Our collaborations exemplify how, through community and innovation, our impact on the planet is magnified. Every member of the Play It Green community contributes to this incredible journey of environmental restoration and sustainability. Let’s continue this amazing work together, embracing new technologies and collaborations to create a greener, healthier planet for generations to come.
