Climate change and artificial intelligence are two of the most consequential developments confronting humanity’s future. Yet the connections between them are only starting to be understood.
Artificial intelligence tools have the potential to enhance policy efforts to protect the environment and promote sustainability goals. In addition, climate change solutions are likely to demand increasingly complex scientific and technical analyses that could be enhanced by machine learning.
This year-long workshop series features leading experts from diverse disciplines whose scholarship explores, in different ways, how AI may help enhance solutions to climate change—as well as how AI itself could be made more sustainable and energy efficient.
The AI and Climate Change workshop series, organized by the Penn Program on Regulation, is made possible in part by funding from Penn’s Environmental Innovations Initiative. Additional co-sponsors of the series include the Center for Technology, Information & Competition, Kleinman Center for Energy Policy, Warren Center for Network and Data Sciences, and Wharton Climate Center.
The full slate of workshops is listed below. All the workshops will be held in person and are free and open to the public.
The Fall 2023 workshops will take place in the Kleinman Center Energy Forum, located on the 4th floor of the Fisher Fine Arts Building. Please click on the titles for more information and if you would like to register in advance.
