Opening a window on environmental phenomena
Opening a window on environmental phenomena
Data collected by satellites, drones, radars and microscopes provide a goldmine of information to better understand our environment. And when these data are coupled with artificial intelligence (AI), they can unlock the secrets of phenomena taking place at all levels. In a rapidly changing world where environmental threats abound, obtaining a better understanding of natural and anthropogenic processes can help corroborate points of view, guide conservation and renewal efforts, and orient new research.

A list of priorities for the protection of biodiversity
A list of priorities for the protection of biodiversity
Biodiversity is dwindling rapidly, while measures to protect it are lagging behind the targets. Only one thing can help: utilising scarce resources as efficiently as possible where they are most effective. The "Lanat-3" research project lays the foundation for this with the help of the latest data and AI-supported models.
