How AI and Data Science can help fight Climate Change

Iceberg

Climate change is an undeniable reality and steps are being taken to reverse the damage already done. In order to prepare for the future, research scientists and data scientists are leveraging modern day technology like A.I. & Machine Learning algorithms to churn through zeta bytes of data to predict the future.

Can AI and proteins stop climate change?

In 2020, a virus showed us how fragile our world is. Before that, our awareness of a much greater threat has grown: climate change. To secure our future in the long term, we need solutions that protect our planet and change it for the better. I am convinced that artificial intelligence must and will have a decisive influence in this. So far, the big solutions are missing — new proteins are groundbreaking…

OcéanIA treats climate change like a machine learning grand challenge

Self-driving cars. Artificial general intelligence. Beating a human in a game of chess. Grand challenges are tasks that can seem like moonshots that, if achieved, will move the entire machine learning discipline forward. Now a team of researchers with the recently established OcéanIA is treating the study of the ocean and climate change as a machine learning grand challenge. The four-year project that brings together more than a dozen AI researchers and scientists shared some initial plans this week.

Google’s Tree Canopy Lab taps AI to help cities plan tree-planting projects

Google today announced the launch of Tree Canopy Lab for Los Angeles, a tool that combines AI and aerial imagery to help cities see their current tree canopy coverage and plan future tree-planting projects. Google says that Tree Canopy Lab, which is a part of the company’s Environmental Insights Explorer platform, could make it easier for cities to measure, plan, and reduce carbon emissions and pollution.

What ML practitioners are doing about climate change

This week without question it’s the smoke that’s hung over the western United States and the underlying issue of climate change. In the Bay Area Wednesday, the density of the smoke effectively blocked out the sun and cast a deep, dark orange or red light. The eerie scenery drew comparisons to Blade Runner 2049, among other sci-fi scenarios.

We can solve the climate crisis by tracing pollution back to its sources.

We can solve the climate crisis by tracing pollution back to its sources.

Climate TRACE — which stands for Tracking Real-time Atmospheric Carbon Emissions — comprises organizations from the tech sector that have pioneered some of the most-powerful software-based emissions-monitoring solutions in the world, in part using artificial intelligence (AI) and remote sensing. As the climate crisis deepens and our technology advances, we felt the time was ripe to join together and put these resources to work in powerful new ways.
