Project Description

BushfiresInfo is a One stop shop powered by AI/ML and Intelligent Chatbot for all the information you need regarding Bush Fires. It has the capability to Report and Predict, History of Bushfires. An intelligent chatbot supports easy communication with users and can be potentially used using voice and a variety of languages ( voice and language are further enhancements that can be done ).

This application works as early warning system for the inhabitants and authorities using the Satellite image feed and user upload image to predict the occurrence before it will happen. Use it to minimize the losses by taking preemptive course of action.

Note: The chatbot has not been exposed on the website as it is an IP product and cannot be shared under a creative commons license. The video provided depicts how the chatbot will look and feel.
