This Year's Topic

Computer Vision for Forestry and Agriculture in Indonesia

with focus on: Biodiversity Maintenance, Life Environment Analysis, Worker's Wellbeing, Conservation and Carbon Reserve Assessment, and Precision Agriculture.

The back story

More than ever, the world needs a revolution in the agricultural, farming, and forestry sectors. With the increasing global population, humanity is once again presented with a challenge to utilise technology to maximise the limited resources we have. At least 33,4 million people live off of the agricultural and forestry industries in Indonesia. To sustain our future and enrich the lives of the aforementioned people, we must create greater access towards nutritious food for the current and future generations, optimize the forests’ role as a carbon reservoir, and maintain terrestrial biodiversity.

The urgency of the matter calls for efficient and impactful solutions. In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has been an essential tool that fosters the growth of many industries. This technology assists humans in making strategic decisions that allow businesses to better balance economic productivity, holistic prosperity of the people involved in the industry, and counteracting climate change.

Codegreen AI Hackathon challenges everyone to incorporate AI computer vision in the economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable revolution of the agriculture, farming, and forestry industries - starting in Indonesia. In this competition, you will have the chance to develop your unique solutions under intensive professional mentoring and create concrete change!

What’s the challenge?

Codegreen AI Hackathon awaits the next breakthrough in the future of sustainable agriculture, farming, and forestry. Your solutions may be in the forms of social initiative, business plan, research projects, product development, marketing strategies, and infrastructure plan. Develop an AI computer vision use case that tackles one of our main focus points:

Conservation and Carbon Reserve Assessment

Capacity and growth of carbon reserve measurement, carbon trading, potential, loss prevention from illegal logging or forest fire.

Biodiversity Maintenance

Biodiversity population mapping, behaviour analysis, species' information completion and computation.

Life Environment Analysis

Forest precipitation or forest fire prediction, water and air quality analysis, natural disaster detection.

Worker’s Wellbeing

Exceeded work duration detection, child labor prevention, worker’s safety control.

Precision Agriculture

Pest recognition, crop health and growth monitoring, field performance analysis.

By the end of the Codegreen AI Hackathon, you must develop and present your prototype as a proof of concept for your unique solutions. Most importantly your solution must be efficient, applicable in Indonesia, and incorporates computer vision.
