PROBLEM STATEMENT

Addressing climate change and conserving biodiversity requires the innovative fusion of generative AI and cybersecurity. Generative AI’s capacity for data-driven insights can offer unparalleled comprehension of local ecosystems. This includes creating predictive models by analyzing data from diverse sources, such as local flora and fauna patterns. Yet, the integrity of this ecological data is paramount. Cybersecurity plays a pivotal role in safeguarding data from unauthorized breaches and potential misuse.

We urge students to leverage AI’s analytical prowess for biodiversity conservation while ensuring robust protection of crucial ecological data. Your strategies can redefine the way we perceive and undertake biodiversity conservation in our communities.
