Natural biodiverse forests are more resilient to the natural disturbances that will increase due to the climate crisis.
Complexity in our forest ecosystems is something we need to embrace and encourage. Yet, our practice and approaches are still very much stuck in an “assembly line” mode of operation, where efficiency is maximized by simplifying the forest environment to the extreme.
We need new tools to empower forest managers to tame and harness the complexity of healthy forest ecosystems. At foldAI we believe these tools are to be found at the intersection between IoT and AI, and we are working hard to realize them.
