AIhub focus issue badge - climate action

As part of our ongoing focus on the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs), we are launching the second topic in this series: climate action. Posts on this topic will be featured on our website throughout February.

AIhub focus issue on climate action

Climate action

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing our planet. The impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale. Many machine learning experts have been turning their attention to the problem. Climate Change AI is one such organisation, composed of volunteers from academia and industry.

In this series, our planned content includes a video from Beril Sirmacek describing work by her and her colleagues on airflow dynamics and urban pollution. We will provide coverage of recent webinars and reports, and take a closer look at topics including weather forecasting, global temperature modelling, and energy efficient buildings. You can also find out more about some of the researchers working in the field in our forthcoming interviews.

It is important to note that AI systems can be very energy hungry, and we will also cover the topic of power consumption in the series.

You will be able to find all the articles related to this issue as we publish them at this link.

About the UN Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 interlinked goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. The SDGs were set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030.

Would you like to contribute?

There is still time to contribute to this focus series. Just send us an email and we’d be happy to help you shape a blog post or set up an interview. Also, watch this space as we are soon to announce the next SDG we plan to cover, with content for that being published from March onwards.
