Recent Physics Graduate Wins UF’s AI Competition

Fire Neural Network, an Artificial Intelligence (AI) startup co-founded by Dr. Istvan Kereszy (UF Physics PhD Fall 2021) and Physics faculty Imre Bartos, won 1st Prize at the University of Florida’s AI days pitch competition, having been selected out of 28 startups.

Fire Neural Network (FNN) uses artificial intelligence along with its proprietary lightning detector network, and data from the newest environmental satellites and other sensors to quickly locate fire ignition spots. The recognition comes on the heels of FNN’s recent success at the 2022 Big Idea Gator Business Plan Competition organized by the Warrington College of Business where FNN won 1st Prize and the Special AI Prize.
