How Artificial Intelligence Can Power Climate Change Strategy

Bernard Marr writes on Forbes on the many ways in which AI is powering climate change strategy.

The C3 Take

Artificial intelligence is powering climate solutions such as energy efficiency technology, making transportation more efficient, and creating low-carbon materials. Technological innovation and AI is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 16%.

“In the Amazon basin, developers of hydropower dams have typically developed one at a time with no long-term strategy. A group led by Cornell University that included computer scientists, researchers, and ecologists developed an AI computational model to find sites for dams (hundreds of hydropower dams are currently proposed for the basin) that can produce the lowest amounts of GHG emissions. The AI model revealed a more complicated and surprising set of considerations to lower GHG emissions than had ever been considered before.”
