Outland Analytics is working to protect forests with a system providing instant notifications of illegal logging. INTERPOL estimates that up to $152 billion of timber is stolen each year. Meanwhile, the United Nations cites deforestation as the leading source of carbon emissions. With acoustic sensors, coupled with artificial intelligence, Outland Analytics is redefining forest security by enabling immediate responses to environmental crimes.
Our mission is to preserve biodiversity and mitigate climate change by utilizing technology to enhance natural resource protection. In collaborating with IBM and the U.S. Forest Service, Outland Analytics culminates a transdisciplinary effort to save the world’s forests.
