Workshop Goals

We live in the age of AI and climate change. Agriculture is one of the most important industries to humans and is ripe for innovation. It also has a large impact on climate change. We met to discuss:

  1. How does AI in agriculture affect climate change?

  2. What other factors affect climate change during food production?

  3. Are there any ethical issues at the intersection of AI, agriculture, and climate change?
