Below are the papers I read for each idea this week. I also read more papers for my third idea, “Fire Spread Simulation” and found the cellular automata algorithm mentioned in one of the papers quite interesting. The basic idea behind the model is to break down the images of the forest fire into different cells and apply the same algorithms onto each cell, similar to divide and conquer. The authors have also developed an improved algorithm based on this model to not only predict how fire spreads but also trace the source of fire.
