Project Prometheus is an early-stage fire detection artificial intelligence technology. It combines auto-piloted drones, weather services and Computer Vision to detect wildfires before they spread too large. Leveraging wildfire images and videos to train a deep learning Neural Networt, it detects the presence of a fire, however small it may be. Named Prometheus, after the Greek Titan who defied the gods by stealing fire from the Olympus and gave it to humanity, an act that enabled progress and civilization. In the same way Project Prometheus tries to still fire from the wild to give it back to humanity, an act that should foster progress and civilization too.
