  • when training AI, if you have a load of similar diomes you’ll end up with monocultural outcomes.
  • in the same way, ‘monoculture’ biomes means you cannot have the degree of biodiversity to sustain a planet, if you don’t have enough diomes you wont be able to represent the richness of our world (natural and human)
  • ensure that the diome has as complete a representation of the system as possible, with appropriate granularity, resolution, quality, volume and systems ontology?

Builds on the definition of Biome

“A biome is a biogeographical unit consisting of a biological community that has formed in response to the physical environment in which they are found and a shared regional climate. Biomes may span more than one continent. Biome is a broader term than habitat and can comprise a variety of habitats.”
