Capgemini builds Artificial Intelligence solution to help conserve Mojave desert


Capgemini revealed that it has recently partnered with The Nature Conservancy in Nevada and also developed an AI solution to help gauge the impact of landscape and ecosystem degradation indicators across the Mojave Desert.

The Mojave Desert is the smallest of the four deserts in the US that comprise the North American desert. It spreads across southwestern Utah, California, northwestern Arizona, and Southern Nevada.

Executive Opinion

Jerry Kurtz, Head of Insights and Data at Capgemini in North America, said, "Capgemini brings deep AI and data science expertise, and our innovative solution can help find and monitor land degradations in the Mojave Desert. We’re very hopeful that we will be able to apply this solution to a wide range of conservation efforts that help protect at-risk natural environments around the world."

Michael Clifford, Nevada Conservation Scientist at The Nature Conservancy, said, "Capgemini’s solution has been monitoring off-roading in a small portion of the Western Mojave. The solution has the possibility of helping to monitor degradation to the desert at scale. We are tremendously grateful for Capgemini’s work with TNC on this critical landscape."

Collaboration between the Capgemini and The Nature Conservancy

Capgemini claimed to have used computer vision and machine learning technologies to monitor the impact on the Mojave Desert landscape and wildlife ecosystem.

Capgemini also claimed that it had developed a tool to study satellite images and also to monitor the off-road vehicles trails. This data is then compared to other relevant information, such as nesting areas of protected species like Mojave Desert tortoise.
