Tackling Climate Change with Machine Learning
In this talk, we explore how machine learning can be a powerful tool in helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to a changing climate. From smart grids to disaster management, we examine high impact problems where existing gaps can be filled by machine learning, in collaboration with other fields.
