AI for estimating global bushfire smoke and its health burden

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

Our planet is facing more frequent, longer and unprecedented bushfires under climate change. Our aim is to apply AI for estimating the concentrations of bushfire smoke across the world and its global health burden, which is a vital prerequisite for guiding policy and the public health response.
There is a significant knowledge gap on the burden of bushfire smoke on human health. Major barriers include: 1) only sparsely distributed air pollution monitoring stations, which substantially limits the exposure assessment of bushfire smoke because it is highly variable; and 2) lack of global health data
