EUROPEAN CLIMATE DIPLOMACY WEEK : Climate Protection & Artificial Intelligence on Wednesday, 25 September at the Federal Foreign Office

Climate change and artificial intelligence (AI) are both topics high up on the political agenda, but responsibility currently sits with two separate communities. While climate change is one of the most urgent and pressing challenges facing us all, AI is creating new opportunities for all sectors, including science.

On the occasion of European Climate Diplomacy Week 2019, the German Federal Foreign Office, the British Embassy in Germany and the French Embassy in Germany would like to invite you to discuss questions such as:

  • How can we make use of the opportunities offered by AI and new emerging technologies to address and solve the climate challenge?
  • How can AI help us develop better climate change models and prevent natural disasters?
  • To what extent can AI support the creation of new low-carbon technologies, the monitoring of deforestation and the development of sustainable transportation?
  • Where are the limits to introducing digital tools into everyday life?
  • How can governments benefit from these developments when designing climate policies?

Speakers include:

o   Aljoscha Borchardt, Deputy Site Director of the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI GmbH) in Berlin

o   Laurence Monnoyer-Smith, Climate and Environment Adviser to the President, French National Centre for Space Studies (CNES)

o   Charlie Smoothy, Policy Advisor, UK Office for Artificial Intelligence
