AI for Climate
Explain your idea in details:
This creative AI would screen the biggest carbon emitters to understand factors that determine how active they are in these emissions. Then it would recommend non-obvious policy guidelines based on the complex understanding of these factors that are currently difficult to grasp for a policymaker alone.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
We are currently running on a +4°C scenario if we strictly apply Nationally Determined Contributions defined through the UNFCCC framework. This is catastrophic in regard to the GIEC's +1,5°C recommentation. This creative AI could help accelerate the understanding of underlying dynamics behind Climate Change Mitigation thus allow us to find unforeseen middle grounds between Climate Issues and other general issues that would allow to reach the +1,5°C temperature raise target.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
This AI would be funded by monthly subscriptions from organizations to access an online marketplace (tenders) that will recommend AI-based cooperations between stakeholders around one policymaker's leadership. Minimal team requires a Public Affairs Specialist to promote the tool and an AI developer to implement the tool.
I'm a 29 years old Public Affairs Consultant working mainly on International Affairs. I hold a background in AI, Competitive Intelligence and Public Affairs. My goal is to popularize policy algorithms to improve global governance in regard to longterm goals. My priority in 2018 is climate change mitigation to prevent the melting of permafrost that could potentially lead to unprecedented pandemics (existential risk).
