The Challenge | Spot That Fire!

Build a crowdsourcing tool for citizens to contribute to early detection, verification, tracking, visualization, and notification of wildfires.


A.I. driven wildfire prevention app using data from recycled mobile phones and NASA.

Hot S.O.S.

There are 100,000 wildfire incidents in the U.S. every year and in 2017, US$ 71B worth of economic losses has been reported*. One of the biggest reasons is the lack of early wildfire detection. As a solution, we propose an AI driven pocket fire alarm designed to notify households using solar-powered secondhand mobile phones as sensors and NASA data.
