AI Predicts Wildfires in Alaska AND “30 Years of Discovery; Hope on the Horizon Dealing with Alzheimer’s

Shane Coffield, PhD student and researcher at UCI’s Department of Earth System Science, presents the Randerson Labs’ interesting findings using machine learning/artificial intelligence which models wildfires in Alaska, to predict which fires will burn out of control.  The model will have application with California wildfires.

In the second segment (minute 30:19), Dr. Carl Cotman covers the state of Alzheimer’s research in advance of the UCIMIND¬†Alzheimer’s Association annual conference in Irvine on 10-25-19, the title of which is “30 Years of Discovery; Hope on the Horizon.¬† Chelsea Cox covers the roster of this year’s presenters.
