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? Here we set out to find answers to these questions.
We spoke to Stephan Bohn from the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) about the extent to which digital tools and platforms have an impact on rainforest protection in Indonesia.
AI chatbot ChatGPT reached more users than Instagram or TikTok in the days after its launch. However, nobody is speaking about the vast quantities of energy required to develop and host the systems.
Machine Learning has been on everyone’s lips for a while now. A constant fixture in tech circles in recent years, this field of AI is booming with new applications within a variety of industries. But, could Machine Learning be gearing up to help with social causes, too?
While ChatGPT’s understanding of climate change is broadly accurate, it is prone to making mistakes that reflect larger societal misunderstandings of the issue.
The trucking sector is relatively low-hanging fruit when it comes to reducing carbon emissions. Here's how AI and other technologies are seeking to revolutionise it.
Will my bus be on time? How full will it be? Is there still room for my bike? Real-time data and forecasts can not only help to align public transport with actual demand, but also make it more reliable and attractive for passengers.
Technologies such as artificial intelligence might have the potential to drastically reduce the environmental impact of the emission-heavy trucking sector.
AI and digitisation are helping to make our roads better organised, faster to navigate, and lighter on the environment. But, what are the roadblocks in automating our traffic?
Could we soon be living in a time when buses drive themselves? Autonomous, on-demand shuttle projects are connecting cutting-edge technology with local transportation needs.
