On 1 March, EY launched the 2021 Better Working World Data Challenge for university students and early career data scientists, part of an annual global data science program looking at how we can use data and AI to find tangible solutions to real-world problems and help build a better world. 

In close partnership with Microsoft, the 2021 Better Working World Data Challenge tasks students with developing an automated fire-edge detection and forecasting model using airborne and satellite imagery from NASA, to help tackle the global threat of bushfires.
