  • David Ndzi (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


he keynote talk examines the role of ICT and telecommunication in combating climate change. In particular, it focuses on the role of ICT in predicting environmental conditions for effective management, disaster prevention and reduction in emissions from mitigation measures. The use of wireless sensor networks and artificial intelligent systems to predict rain, rain duration, rain runoff and thus river characteristics are presented. The application of these systems in water resource management and precision agriculture are also presented.

The work draws heavily from research on rainfall studies in the British Isle and North West continental Europe. In the tropics, the usecase is based on studies in North West Peninsular Malaysia most of which have been a collaboration with the University of Malaysia Perlis. The effective application of ICT as presented in this talk will address at least 8 of the UN Sustainable Development Goal.
