Video: Delivering edge computing on Robinson Crusoe Island (Chile) to preserve biodiversity

"In the video, David explains the high impact of invasive species removal for biodiversity and the challenges faced on remote islands. A great deal of time is spent tracking invasive species by manually collecting data from cameras. Without internet connectivity, the files must be uploaded to external hard drives and shipped out by plane. This extends a simple detection process from weeks to months.

However, Lenovo has ensured a dramatic increase in efficiency on Robinson Crusoe Island, both in terms of time and cost. This exciting collaboration will help accelerate multiple island restoration projects in the future, including the ambitious Island-Ocean Connection Challenge, which aims to restore at least 40 island-marine ecosystems by 2030."
