Episode Summary

In this episode of The Data Standard, host Darren Kaplan talks about data science for the environment with Jenny Lin, a senior data scientist at Pandora.

Pollution is a very viable threat that tarnishes the world we live in, so benefiting the environment in any way possible is essential. We’re even closer to irreversibly ruining the environment than we think, and we’re losing species at a worrying rate.

Ocean, land, and biodiversity are all under threat due to the highly damaging pollution – and data science might bring the necessary solutions. While COVID-19 might have had a positive impact on the environment, things won’t improve much without immediate human intervention.  

A good system that handles the long game of environmental conservation is AI. Software and hardware solutions like this can be used for non-invasive monitoring of endangered species, the extent and location of deforestation, and predicting and forecasting. 

Tune in with Darren Kaplan and Jenny Lin to learn more about the exciting world of data science and the technology that has the potential for saving the environment.
