Upcoming seminars:

  • 2022-01-27: Aleksis Pirinen, RISE. AI and Climate Change.
    Abstract: This talk is divided into two parts. In the first part I provide a brief overview of how artificial intelligence (AI) is being or can be used to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change. The content here will to some extent be based on the report "Tackling Climate Change with Machine Learning" by Rolnick et al. In the second part I outline some potential considerations and discussion topics regarding AI before and/or during a potential (climate change-induced) societal collapse, which hundreds of scholars now say we should discuss and prepare for (see e.g. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/dec/06/a-warning-on-climate-and-the-risk-of-societal-collapse). The purpose of this second part is to initiate dialogue on how AI may be used to mitigate and adapt to (parts of) collapse, as well as to highlight risks with and limits of AI in this context.
