New Energy: Tackling Climate Change with Machine Learning

Priya Donti, PhD candidate at Carnegie Mellon University, presents recent research as part of the online New Energy series.

Wednesday, March 30, 2022
12:00pm – 1:00pm
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Homepage Featured, Lectures & Seminars
Registration required.

Priya Donti, Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University and co-founder and chair of Climate Change AI, an initiative to catalyze impactful work in climate change and machine learning, gives a talk called "Tackling Climate Change with Machine Learning" as part of the online New Energy series. 

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges that society faces today, requiring rapid action from all corners. In this talk, Donti will describe how machine learning can be a potentially powerful tool for addressing climate change, when applied in coordination with policy, engineering, and other areas of action. From energy to agriculture to disaster response, she will describe high impact problems where machine learning can help through avenues such as distilling decision-relevant information, optimizing complex systems, and accelerating scientific experimentation. Donti will then dive into some of her own work in this area, which merges data-driven approaches with physical knowledge to facilitate the transition to low-carbon electric power grids.
