While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    Solar-Powered System Protects Brazil’s Rainforest

    Non-profit uses machine learning and solar energy to protect the rainforest

    Greg Beach, March 23, 2018 (Inhabitat)

    “…Rainforest Connection has created a unique, technologically advanced system to defend the rainforests of Brazil…[It] incorporates machine learning and solar energy to operate sensor devices called Guardians that listen to the rainforest and send real-time messages if illegal logging activity is detected. Built out of modified cellphones, the Guardians are placed high in the canopy. The solar panels mitigate the need for battery changes or maintenance. With assistance from Google, Rainforest Connection has focused their efforts on the Amazon Rainforest in Pará, northern Brazil, where they have also collaborated with the local Tembé people, who are defending their homeland from encroaching logging…Up in the canopy, the Guardians capture sounds, which are then sent to Rainforest Connection…[With Google TensorFlow’s machine-learning software, the] sounds are then analyzed so that the location and origin of the sounds can be determined…” click here for more
