The #WildEdge Tech Revolution
I've been involved in a project to protect #Jaguars for some time now, it implies to build low power consumption, smart and connected edge devices. While doing so I realized the need for information regarding the use of technology to protect them in their demanding environment. WildEdge, this site, is maintained to accomplish that goal, to share knowledge about edge Computing, #tinyML and related technologies and to share information about the progress of my main project Big Cat Brother. The center of this work are the Jaguars or Yaguaretés as we call them here, They are silently facing an extinction crisis here and in the rest of America, you will find information about them too.
WE ARE NOT A
WE ARE NOT
WE ARE NOT
WE PLAY A ROLE
WE ARE ABOUT TO BE GONE FOREVER
I learnt many things during this time, one thing is that these problems can be addressed by different approaches, from creating social opportunities around wildlife (I strongly recommend you to see the amazing work of Tompkins Conservation and Rewilding Argentina, see the Links) to enforce controls and apply technology to keep track of relevant events. Big Cat Brother, is an example of the last one.
Our constant need for expansion and resources confined WildLife to relatively small, remote and hard to penetrate places. That means that technology based solutions have to deal with very extreme operational conditions; those constraints are typically the lack of energy sources, communication infrastructure and autonomy. This is what I mean by wild edge tech. Why do I say it is a Revolution ? Well, It will be a revolution because powerful and low power consumption computing is evolving pretty fast and I bet you will see lots of smarts devices everywhere soon. The enablers are there, now decisions is what is needed.
What you will find in this site is:
Information about Jaguars.
Information about the technology being used to develop the devices that compose BCB.
Please, check the Motivations and Values and Transparency sections but rest assured that the content of this site is not being influenced by any company nor organization, all the information you will find here is my pure criteria for choosing what I think is the best option to achieve my aims. I hope this site will help you you will find your own ways to achieve yours, it is a time for a change and to rewild ourselves a little bit. Feel free to subscribe and welcome.
