Convergence AI Mixer: Fasttracking climate resilience with AI

26 January 2023 @ 15:00 - 17:00 CET

Quickly, AI is starting to define all our industries – but we wonder if it can also help us solve the bigger societal issues we are facing. Especially in the Netherlands, the threat of climate change worries us all. Can AI help us change its course? Or help us adapt to what it changes?

Due to climate change the population is facing difficult questions, to which the answers have huge consequences. Any decisions made about the future will have to take into account the changing landscape; a third of Netherlands is below sea level and severe droughts are compromising the integrity of our dikes. With rising water levels, how do we avoid becoming climate migrants in 50 years time?

To help us solve or face these problems, research and development looks to AI technology. However, there are still many questions on the way to go about it. In the long run, do we believe that AI is a viable solution for climate resilience? And if we do, how is AI currently being used to address climate change in cities? Also, who should the population look to for the solutions provided? Who will be at the forefront of leading the transition to protecting our homes?

In this Convergence AI Mixer, academics from South-Holland’s top universities and experts from the revelant industries and organisations try to answer some of these question.
