ICAI Day Autumn Editon 2022: AI and Climate Change”

On the 16th of November, ICAI organizes the ICAI Day Fall Edition. This hybrid event will take place in Utrecht and online. This ICAI event will focus on AI & Climate Change

The Climate crisis has a great impact on everyone and every living being on earth. As an AI community, ICAI would like to dedicate the ICAI Day Autumn Edition 2022 to address this important topic. In this edition, we invite experts not only from the AI field but also from the political/economic domains; we would like to deep-dive into the current challenges we are facing in climate change and look into how we all can work together to find possible solutions with the help of AI technology.
