WIFIRE Commons enables AI-driven societal and scientific wildland fire applications through data and model sharing. The primary objective of the project is to create a convergence environment to accelerate wildland fire science and its proactive application to operational use for mitigation, planning, response, and recovery through AI innovations.
 
To achieve convergence between artificial intelligence and fire science communities, WIFIRE Comons develops an intelligent and integrated infrastructure to catalog, curate, exchange, analyze, optimize, and communicate big data and models at scale.
