Tech company CollectiveCrunch and Metsähallitus Forestry Ltd., the subsidiary of Finnish state-owned land and forest management enterprise Metsähallitus have entered into an innovation partnership with the goal of improving harvesting and forest development planning through deep artificial intelligence (AI) technology and big data analysis.
The organizations will develop new forestry tools and services throughout the course of their innovation-driven partnership using CollectiveCrunch’s Linda Forest technology platform.
Linda Forest is an AI platform that utilizes climate, geo, and customer process data to arrive at better predictions of forest inventory. The solution lets foresters know the volumes and species of wood they have on their land without having to drive out for inspection.
CollectiveCrunch, founded in 2016, is a fast-growing technology company with forest industry customers in Finland, Sweden, Estonia, and Brazil.
