The Aeronautics and Space Research Organisation of the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) is developing a platform that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to monitor natural resources and the environment. The use of AI to monitor natural resources and the environment is still in the development phase, according to the head of the research organisation.

Moreover, the study has only been ongoing since 2020, in response to an increase in demand from customers across a variety of sectors, particularly during the pandemic. Automation of the remote sensing data process to produce various forms of spatial information could be done rapidly and accurately using AI technology.

The use of remote sensing is crucial, notably for the forestry sector in general and to avoid forest fires, according to Erna Sri Adiningsih, the head of BRIN’s Aeronautics and Space Research Organisation. She explained that this can be done by observing changes in forest and land topography, deforestation, forest and land fire danger levels, and hotspot detection-based forest and land fires.

“AI utilisation for remote sensing became one of the research targets for the 2020-2024 period and is also one of the research topics from the development of PLATYPUS (Remote Sensing Platform for All),” she affirmed. To interpret remote sensing data, BRIN’s Aeronautics and Space Research Organisation is establishing a machine learning-based automation system platform, artificial intelligence, or the internet of things.

Automation for remote sensing data processing could be useful in a variety of situations. Droughts, farming, river flow areas, lakes, floods, landslides, plantations, volcanoes, and mangroves, for example, might all be monitored with them.

In related developments, BRIN has supported the development of an ASEAN-wide AI development roadmap to assist the ASEAN community in advance in different sectors, including the creative industry.

OpenGov Asia reported President Joko Widodo has claimed on multiple occasions that “whoever controls AI would rule the world,” according to Hammam Riza, chairman of KORIKA. Hence, many governments are striving to establish and publish a national strategy for artificial intelligence development.

Last month, the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) will showcase the latest developments and applications of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in Indonesia through the Research Organisation for the Assessment and Application of Technology (OR PPT) and the collaboration of Artificial Intelligence Research and Innovation (KORIKA).

The National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence’s principal goal is to transition from a government-driven to a demand-driven axis through partnership. The Artificial Intelligence Innovation Centre (PIKA), which eventually gave rise to KORIKA, was founded because of the National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence. Hammam added that his party sought to establish KORIKA, a flexible and trustworthy institution capable of forming a collaborative ecosystem to speed the use of artificial intelligence toward Indonesia’s 2045 vision.

KORIKA is an orchestrator organisation in the form of an association that promotes the formation of an environment that fosters artificial intelligence innovation. The goal is to establish and strengthen an Indonesian economy that is in step with global trends, such as the digital, green, and blue economies.

In addition, according to Laksana Tri Handoko, the head of the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN), the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the creative business has expanded considerably in the previous five years. On the one hand, we want to ensure that AI will provide so many benefits in increasing the productivity of workers, providers, scientists, and engineers in the creative industry sector, to embed innovation into every corner of the mission interest in creating economic growth, customer/consumer service satisfaction, and improving people’s living standards

He also remarked that the slowing speed of the ASEAN shared economy provides more opportunity for technology innovators to give sharp answers for the government to consider because we are more encouraged to hear fresh inspired ideas that only the scientific community offer.
