Summary

Can rapid advances in robotics, increasingly sophisticated algorithms, and exponential increases in data availability help us create and maintain wild places? In their recent Opinion article, Cantrell and colleagues [1] explore the ‘potential for fully automated systems to create and sustain new forms of wild places without ongoing direct human intervention’ (p. 1). They also elaborate how these systems could contribute to new ways of automating environmental management and creating a ‘new wildness’.
