One of the greatest threats that our world is facing is climate change. As builders and innovators of the world, engineers, data scientists, and tech founders should actively explore new solutions to tackle climate change issues.
We would like to invite you to join the online event “AI applications in Climate Change,” co-organized by Earth Venture Capital and Thinking Machines Data Science and sponsored by the Irish Embassy in Vietnam.
Through the event, we will discuss how machine learning can be a powerful tool in predicting climate impact, weather models, land insurance, and helping society adapt to a changing climate. Specifically, we identify high-impact problems where existing gaps can be filled by machine learning, in collaboration with other fields.
