Climate Change AI Summer School 2022

Virtual: weekdays between Aug 15th – 26th, 2022  (time zone TBD)

Website: https://www.climatechange.ai/events/summer_school2022.html

Application deadline: December 17th 2021

Contact: summer...@climatechange.ai

The Climate Change AI summer school is designed to educate and prepare participants with a background in artificial intelligence and/or a background in a climate-change related field to tackle major climate problems using AI. The summer school aims to bring together a multidisciplinary group of participants and facilitate project-based team work to strengthen collaborations between different fields and foster networking in this space. 

The first part of the summer school will consist of a mix of lectures and hands-on tutorials organized into two tracks, one focused on AI fundamentals and one focused on climate change. In both tracks, the program will provide an overview of machine learning applications in a broad range of climate change-related areas. This includes covering foundational machine learning methods and state-of-the-art tools, while underlining their advantages and limitations, and describing how they can be used in practice to address the climate crisis. The second part of the summer school will consist of a collaborative project at the intersection of climate change and machine learning. Participants will work together in multidisciplinary groups under the guidance of a mentor to develop AI-based solutions for climate change problems.

The cohort will be composed of applicants from complementary areas of study/work, to be selected on the basis of their background and experience as well as their motivation for joining the summer school.

Applications are due by: Dec 17, 2021  23:59 AOE (Anywhere on Earth, UTC-12). To apply, please submit your application through this form:
