There is no denying that technology is moving at a breakneck speed, and aside from just being a fancy thing you would show off, technology is slowly creeping into a lot of things as well. For starters, both artificial intelligence and cloud computing are things that a lot of people think are completely useless as they are mostly gimmicks when you look at the smaller applications. However, when you look at the larger scenario, the good news is that cloud computing as well AI are helping in conserving the nature.
For those who do not know, a conservancy that goes by the name of The Nature Conservancy is using Microsoft Azure cloud services; this in result is revolutionizing how non-profit conservation are planning to serve the future, and make sure that the world we live in is protected by the use of technology. These organisations are trying their best to make sure that the impact of their constant struggles are being witnessed on the ground level, and hopefully the sea as well.
The Natural Conservancy entered into a long term partnership with Microsoft, and that empowered them to opt for some really innovative approaches that were the perfect mix of traditional academic research with use of big data, artificial intelligence, as well as social media input. The use of these technologies in a group will allow for the mapping of the full value of coral reefs to tourism, and ultimately highlighting the benefit of sustainable reef management.
Most of the work that is being done by the Nature Conservancy is making sure they communicate the importance of nature itself. They don’t want to only do it through beautiful vistas. For instance, they want to communicate the importance of the nature as a linchpin in most of the local economies, as well as a cushion against the effects that are in place because of the climate change.
It has been said time and again that we are not going to get another earth, and while organisations such as NASA are trying their best to make sure that they find life on other planets, it is also important to keep in mind that the science has a lot of progress to make. While one organization finds a planet that is inhabitable, as the habitants of the planet earth, it is our duty to ensure that the earth is being as healthy as possible. Sure, it might sound like a difficult task, but through joint efforts, and with the help of companies like Microsoft, and many other who are looking for a greener future, we can only say that the future does look bright, with slivers of hope scattered everywhere.
If the efforts are going as they are, it will only be a matter of time when this world finally becomes the type of world we would be proud to live in, and the type of world that would sustain itself with great ease.
