This book has already shown how science goes hand in hand with technology (engineering). One of the most exciting trends of the modern age is how science leverages the exponential power and assistance of artificial intelligence (AI) to help address the unprecedented challenges facing humanity and the planet, including climate change, water scarcity, global health crises, food security, and loss of biodiversity. GIS technology is no different; it extends our minds by abstracting our world into knowledge objects that we can create, replicate, and maintain. These knowledge objects include data, imagery, and models that explain process and workflows, as well as maps that communicate and persist in apps.
