Addressing Climate Change with the Cloud

February 9, 2016 § Leave a comment

Across the world the effects of pollution and climate change are impacting the way people live.

Traditionally, combating these harmful elements has required reactive efforts to decrease further pollution by either limiting or quantifying the impact of human actions on air quality. While this has helped the world understand the scope of pollution and its impact on climate change, proactive action has been limited by siloed data compiled based on limited variables and historical patterns. This does not include insights from unstructured data, which makes up 80% of the world’s data. Instead, what if real time analysis of sensors, traffic cameras, weather imaging, and even satellite photography was used to cognitively understand pollution and help users make better decisions?

Also, a move to the cloud is never the goal in itself: always start with defining what your business drivers are to pinpoint what it is that you want to achieve. Everyone wants to do things cheaper and faster, but exactly how much and to what extent is this to be achieved without compromising quality?
