S2E8 — How Machine Learning and Satellite Imagery are Preventing Wildfires with Indra den Bakker of Overstory

October 20, 2021

I speak with Indra den Bakker on how Overstory is preventing wildfires with machine learning and satellite imagery.

This week, I am joined by Indra den Bakker, CEO & Co-Founder of Overstory, to discuss how his company applies machine learning to satellite imagery to reduce the risk of wildfires and power outages, how his work improves decision-making about the Earth's forests, why utility lines still cause so many wildfires and how AI-driven vegetation management can help, how he applies his love for AI to combat the impacts of climate change, and his advice for young nature-focused tech start-ups.
