Winter 2021: Machine Learning Applied to Climate Change

This seminar will explore how machine learning can be applied in fighting climate change. We will look at ways that machine learning can be used to help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the effects of climate change – via applications in electricity systems, buildings, transportation, agriculture, disaster response, and many other areas. Particular emphasis will be given to understanding exactly when machine learning is relevant and helpful, and how to go about scoping, developing, and deploying a project so that it has the intended impact.
