IoT and ML have created great leaps forward in creating new experiences and ways for technologists to create solutions. This innovation isn’t limited to urban or industrial scenarios, conservation has started to leverage these same ideas. Join Sarah Maston, Senior Program Manager for Azure Sphere and Founder of Project 15 from Microsoft, who will share the story of Project 15; from where the idea came from to partnering with the GEF Small Grants Programme implemented by the United Nations Development Program. How the invention of the Project 15 Open Platform (http://aka.ms/project15code) has helped enable scientific developers all over the world. We, as a technical community, have valuable skills to contribute to help conservation science and Sarah will explore some of the ways in which you can get involved.
