We discuss the X Factor Prize for wildfire prevention and introduce their guest, Michael Plaksin, Vice President of Marketing for ALCHERA X. Their goal is to protect and detect cities, states and countries from the devastation of wildfires. Their goal is to use our leading AI SaaS program to quickly and effectively detect and notify first responders from 20 minutes to 2 hours before a 911 call or any type of notification. Allowing more time to be able to extinguish a potentially damaging fire.
They talk about the $11 million prize and how teams can register to participate. Michael shares his experience attending the launch event in Washington, D.C. and expresses confidence in his company’s ability to win. The conversation then shifts to Alchera X’s facial recognition technology and its applications in various settings, including airports. They discuss how the technology works and its potential benefits for security purposes.
Finally, they introduce Fire Scout, a smoke detection technology developed by Alchera X. They highlight its effectiveness in detecting smoke and fires at an early stage, emphasizing its potential to prevent damage and improve safety.
