Welcome to Sitemark’s AI for Earth Project Site (Active)
AI for Earth is a $50 million, 5-year program that brings the full advantage of Microsoft technology to those working to solve global environmental challenges in the critical focus areas of climate, agriculture, water, and biodiversity. Through grants that provide access to cloud and AI tools, opportunities for education and training on AI, and investments in innovative, scalable solutions, AI for Earth works to advance sustainability across the globe.
Renewable energy is one of the most important actions to reduce the environmental impact. But research has shown that 30% of all PV plants underperform, making drone inspections a must to ensure maximum output.
The AI for Earth grant from Microsoft will help further our efforts in assisting solar asset managers in optimizing their site’s performance by providing them with actionable insights on data gathered via drone inspections. This grant will provide us with the infrastructure to accelerate our work on applying AI to automatically detect and classify objects on aerial imagery of solar sites worldwide, reducing costs and improving the scalability of inspections.
