II. LITERATURE REVIEW
Forest fires, characterized by their swift and destructive nature, have prompted extensive research into predictive modeling, aiming to minimize their impact on ecosystems and human lives. Previous studies have predominantly explored traditional methods, such as statistical models and rule-based systems, relying on historical fire data and meteorological variables. While informative, these approaches often face challenges in capturing the complexity of wildfire dynamics, especially in the context of changing environmental conditions and climate patterns.
In recent years, a paradigm shift has occurred with the increasing integration of machine learning techniques into forest fire prediction. Machine learning offers a data-driven approach, capable of discerning intricate patterns and relationships within diverse datasets. Various algorithms, including Random Forest, Support Vector Machines, and Neural Networks, have demonstrated promise in enhancing the accuracy and efficiency of forest fire prediction models.
