With the loss of major parts of the Amazon rainforest, the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, and last year’s bushfires in Australia, it is evidently clear we have reached the tipping point in climate change. Dr Marcus Ranney delves into climate change and discusses the AI tools needed to fix it.

MUMBAI - Globally, climate change is the new buzzword and, with the recent United Nations (UN) Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow late last year, things are starting to heat up. 

With the loss of major parts of the Amazon rainforest, the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, and last year’s bushfires in Australia, it is evidently clear we have reached the tipping point in climate change. These events have had a high and irreversible impact on the biophysical activities of the planet, and it has become a hindrance to social and economic development around the world. 

Talk around clean and emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), Blockchain, the Internet of Things, and fifth-generation wireless communications networks to combat the climate crisis has been on the industry’s lips since the UN climate summit in Copenhagen in 2009. These emerging technologies are all part of this deeply transformative period and the stepping stones to how businesses, politics, countries, and individuals function today. 

There is a need for change, but do we have the digital automation tools to combat climate change or is it too late?

Experts say that AI could help reduce global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 4 percent in 2030 under the AI for Earth scheme. Microsoft is also at the helm, helping a number of organizations to work on climate change to achieve their 2030 Vision.
