Masatomo Kobayashi of IBM Tokyo Research Lab, and Michitaka Hirose of the Cyber Interface Lab at the University of Tokyo have designed a concept for remote forestry, in which remote work is extended to pair up experienced but retired forestry experts with their younger counterparts still new to the job. The project aims to assist workers in fully understanding which trees to cut, and how to approach the cut. These are all insights that can be acquired through the power of remote conferencing which enables a safer, more productive and ecologically-sound output.
