From forests to deserts to the land humans have shaped through agriculture and urban expansion, Earth makes up the life of the planet. It has become increasingly important to adjust current practices altering natural ecosystems so that ecological communities and humans can continue to flourish in harmony.
While technologies such as deep learning are being leveraged to tackle climate change, the carbon footprint of such technologies themselves have come under investigation by companies and researchers. In order to ensure sustainable development going forward, it is crucial that the climate impacts of such technological solutions are equally addressed.
The future in AI is exciting and promises many different solutions to combat the problems that may arise with climate change. Researchers, innovators, and governments need to urgently share their technology and data with other countries or communities to address this global issue.
