For many people, tossing garbage into the bin marks the end of their relationship with it. It has now become someone else's responsibility and - if it has not been disposed of properly - someone else’s problem.
Artificial intelligence has long since solved complex tasks and made our everyday lives easier. But do intelligent computer programmes also provide new solutions for environmental and climate protection?
The manufacturer of graphics cards wants to use its know-how to recreate the Earth in a digital simulation on a unprecedented one metre scale.
While some manufacturers are going big, others are looking to small, self-sustaining microfactories as a more sustainable way to build things.
How many insects fly around us? Which species are out and about in our gardens, meadows and cities? It’s not an easy question to answer. But in the future, the KInsecta project will make it possible for researchers and interested laypeople to easily collect and evaluate data on the local insect world.
Citizen science usually requires an active participant to get - and stay - involved. Now researchers have been experimenting with a passive approach that deputises photographers into conservation and nature research, without them having to do anything.
The journal "ÖkologischesWirtschaften" looks at socioeconomics and ecological economics. RESET is pleased to be included in a new special issue on digitalisation and sustainability - with a guest article on artificial intelligence.
Many rural off-grid communities would benefit hugely from being hooked up to a solar power system. But which areas are most suitable for solar power installation? And which are most in need? A new earth observation software is using artificial intelligence and satellite imagery to bring power to people more accurately, efficiently and faster than before.
Researchers at the German Aerospace Center are working to make space technologies available for humanitarian aid. The aim of their "Data4Human" project: to provide aid workers with the information they need to make crucial decisions - as quickly and precisely as possible.
