Big data analysis is the process of collecting large amounts of data from a variety of sources, such as tweets and photos from ordinary people, and then computationally analyzing it to identify trends, patterns, and associations.
Fremont, CA: In recent years, many aspects have been attributed to technology. One of them is not defending the planet against the dangers of climate change. New technological advancements have long been associated with an increased carbon footprint and other environmental concerns. In this regard, big data is changing the game. Many experts believe that in the coming years, big data will play a vital role in combating climate change.

Big data analysis is the process of collecting large amounts of data from a variety of sources, such as tweets and photos from ordinary people, and then computationally analyzing it to identify trends, patterns, and associations. HP's collaboration with Conservation International is an excellent example of big data analysis.
Earth Insights, collaboration between HP and Conservation International, uses technology to monitor biodiversity loss in tropical forests around the world. Using millions of animal images captured by hidden cameras, scientists can trace how land use, human activities, and climate change have impacted various species.
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has launched Bird Return, a platform that collects and analyses crowd-sourced data from birdwatchers. Data from NASA satellite photography, eBird, and other sources are analyzed to generate precise forecasts of when flocks will emerge. The data is then combined with water maps to determine where the most habitats are needed. The charity then leases the land from farmers for a period of time before flooding it to allow birds to nest, drink, bathe, and rest during their migratory journeys. Farmers benefit from this program because it provides them with water for their crops, so it's a win-win situation for everyone.
Anti-Poaching Rhino Chip of Intel's
Over 1000 rhinos are killed in Southern Africa alone each year. To address the issue, Intel has created a credit-card-sized Galileo board with storage and 3-G connectivity. This chip has been implanted in the critically endangered black and white rhinoceros. The low-power PCB also includes a long-lasting solar panel for charging batteries. Each collared rhino's geo-location and movement data is encrypted to prevent poachers from accessing it. A small RFID chip is embedded in the horn of each animal. If the Galileo board detects a breach in the closeness between the ankle and the horn, anti-poaching squads will be dispatched.
