All public servants at all levels



The impact of climate change is undeniable and the frequency and intensity of natural disasters are increasing with devastating effects on our environment. In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) technologies have emerged as a new way to better understand issues related to climate change and develop more effective solutions to reduce its expected effects.

This event will explore how machine learning can be used to help analyze climate data, develop predictive models and identify solutions to solving the climate crisis.

Participants will learn about the latest AI trends and techniques in the context of climate change, and will gain a broader perspective of the role of AI in tackling one of the most pressing issues of our time.

This event is part of a series of new seminars presented in partnership with Mila, a Quebec-based artificial intelligence institute, designed to connect public servants to Canada’s leading AI researchers.
