Forest Ecosystem Service, especially for health in Indonesia, has not been utilized optimally and it is currently hard to evaluate, making it less appreciated. Forest service utilization models to intervene in physical and mental health first developed in Japan with the name forest healing. Utilizing these services are doable in Indonesia, seeing there’s been an increase of stress to the people of Indonesia, meanwhile we have abundant potential from our forests. As a first step to develop forest healing in Indonesia, the systematic steps to study and research these topics is to identify: 1) intervention characteristics (program, content, and forest characteristic); 2) empirical prove of forest healing’s effectiveness in reducing the people’s stress levels. Next is to systematically review, which includes literature study, data extraction, synthesis and data analysis. Based on literature study results, as much as 39 articles are worth deeper exploration. From this systematic review, it can be identified that: 1) intervention programs such as forest healing that is most found is walking in the forest. Determining healing spots in the forest area also needs require climate factors, land elevation, vegetation density, and forest development to be taken into account to fulfill respondent’s comfort standards; and 2) forest healing is proven to be effective in reducing stress of the people based on analyses made on test parameters and psychological responses. As a result of this study, the forest healing model can be developed in Indonesia.
Identification results towards intervention characteristics can be used as a variable in developing models for field tests towards respondents. Forest characteristics can be used as a parameter to choose an area for the forest healing activity through remote sensing based mapping. For further use, forest healing can be developed into special eco-tourism zones for healing and can be integrated into Indonesia’s healthcare system.
Forest healing is the latest research in utilizing forest services for health and increase forest ecosystem value. On the other hand, forest healing is a new alternative for physical and mental health intervention. This method is very manageable to develop in Indonesia to help reduce stress among the people.

Data from the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries shows that shrimp has successfully become the main fishery commodity, which was always in the first place in the 2012-2017 period. The value of shrimp export always increased in that period of the year. Shrimp seed is one of the main input components in adult shrimp production. The accuracy of shrimp seed number is very important because it will affect the amount of feed given to the seeds. In addition, it is also necessary to evaluate the survival at harvest. The process of counting shrimp seeds is still done manually by human labor. However, the relatively small size of the shrimp and the body that is almost transparent, requires high accuracy and concentration and takes a relatively long time.
BISCOUNT (Baby Shrimp Counter) is cretaed as an innovative shrimp seed counter that is easy to operate directly in the field. BISCOUNT applies Deep Learning technology which could detect shrimp seeds precisely. In addition, the application of the YOLO (You Only Look Once) algorithm from Deep Learning and the use of Coral USB Accelerator will speed up the process of detection and calculation.
BISCOUNT is easy to operate, the counting process is fast, precise and accurate. BISCOUNT will really help shrimp farmers in Indonesia to count shrimp seeds quickly and accurately. In addition, the use of deep learning methods in the detection and counting of shrimp seeds has the opportunity to contribute to the development of science and technology (science and technology).

HOLIE-SEA is an innovative idea in the form of tourist attractions that raised the theme with respect to the preservation of marine ecosystems, with educational and interactive hologram-based Hi-Tech technology. The creation of this idea is strategically in line with the agenda in realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) point 14 "Life Below Water" and point 4 "Quality Education". HOLIE-SEA has three main features, namely : 1) Biolapedia, an innovative gallery with 3D Holographic Reflection technology related to the diversity of rare marine life; 2) Jaga Pantaiku, an artificial beach depiction with educational games facilities for the coastal areas conservation by using Mixed Reality (MR); and 3) Dive n Feel, a submarine ride simulation which provides a concrete visuals conditions of Indonesian under water at various locations and times. Apart from being a tourist attraction, HOLIE SEA is also manage to become a medium for visitors in order to contribute to the marine conservation activities in Indonesia through the digital channel. This can be done by using an additional facility on Biolapedia, called Feed me. Feed me is a virtual food purchasing system for holographic biota in the form of certified donations. The funds that raised will be channeled to the conservation organizations in order to increase the capacity of activities inachieving future restoration of marine biodiversity in Indonesia.
As a medium for providing insightful knowledge related to the conservation for the younger generation as well as an alternative media for collecting and distributing funds based on crowd funding with attractive facilities to support the development of marine conservation in Indonesia.
The HOLIE SEA innovation can be used as an alternative means of marine education tourism with insightful and interactive technology, therefore it can manage to able to provide experience and access to newly insightful knowledge for the visitors regarding to the variety of marine life that is difficult to find. In addition, the HOLIE SEA will then manage to be an innovative platform for conservation donation methods that can reach the rest of the community.
