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.
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.
Large whales can have important environmental and economic impacts. New AI buoys are being rolled out to protect them.
A multi-disciplined project is using machine learning to decode the complex calls of sperm whales. Will we soon be able to 'talk' with them?
Humidity is all around us, and it could be a power source that is going to waste. One Israeli startup is harnessing humidity for home heating.
Many national governments lack the tools, or will, to accurately assess their reforestation efforts. CTrees is a platform aiming to provide transparency and accountability.
If wildfire can be caught early, they are much easier to tackle. Networked AI sensors are providing the tools to give fire crews a head start.
Until now, the development of AI-based technologies for recognising text and speech has been in the hands of large technology companies. BLOOM aims to make this more transparent.
Could specially engineered enzymes soon be used to break down our mountains of plastic waste?
