The National Academy of Sciences presents the virtual event “Climate Conversations: Artificial Intelligence,” a discussion about leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning tools and technologies to advance climate solutions. During the webinar, panelists Priya Donti (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Amy McGovern (University of Oklahoma) discuss the challenges and opportunities related to the current and future role of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in climate solutions. From research and development over the past several decades, modeling complex climate systems is advancing high-performance computing. With the climate crisis upon us, understanding complex climate systems and leveraging big data for decision-making is now mission-critical. Accordingly, AI and ML are transforming computational problems and revealing new solutions to address the challenges of climate change.

About the Speakers

Priya Donti is an incoming Assistant Professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the co-founder and Executive Director of Climate Change AI (CCAI), a global nonprofit initiative to catalyze impactful work at the intersection of climate change and machine learning. Her research focuses on machine learning for forecasting, optimization, and control in high-renewable power grids.

Amy McGovern is a professor in the School of Computer Science and in the School of Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma. Dr McGovern is also the director of the NSF AI Institute for Research on Trustworthy AI in Weather, Climate, and Coastal Oceanography. Her research focuses on developing and applying trustworthy AI and machine learning methods primarily for severe weather phenomena.
