Artificial intelligence to improve our climate understanding
May 9, 2019
The German Climate Consortium (DKK) represents the key actors in climate research within Germany. It serves as a joint information platform and it continuously interacts with both societal and political stakeholders.
In his recent editorial at DKK, Prof. Markus Reichstein features the chances of artificial intelligence (AI) for climate research. AI, regarded as future key technology by scientists and politicians, may spark climate research on many levels: E.g., through improvements in interpreting the ever growing climate data, by using deep learning to allow better climate models, and by improving early warning systems for climate extremes.
In its latest annual meeting (April 4, 2019), DKK addressed the question on how the latest IPCC goals can be implemented by transformative steps on societal and economic levels. The program and most presentations of the invited speakers are available (in German and/ or English) under the following link.
