Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars
Speaker: Dr. Lucas Joppa, Microsoft Research
Talk Title: AI for Earth
Series: Center for AI in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series
Abstract: This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.
Time is too short, and resources too thin, to find solutions to our environmental sustainability challenges without the exponential power and assistance of AI. This talk will cover AI's transformative potential for both closing critical information gaps on Earth's natural environments and optimizing our management of them.
Biography: Dr. Lucas Joppa is the Chief Environmental Scientist at Microsoft Research and leads the company's AI for Earth program, an initiative dedicated to leveraging the latest advances in AI research and engineering for solutions in the four key areas of agriculture, climate, water, and biodiversity conservation.
