Taiwan’s Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) and the Centre for AI & Climate co-organized the webinar, Global use of AI in tackling climate change: building resiliency for businesses and societies, to discuss the trending topic of AI and climate. The webinar focused on how to tackle climate change issues with the help of AI. By discussing and exchanging ideas with international organizations and local experts from the AI HUB, the webinar provided an opportunity to broaden the understanding of AI policy, the technology itself and its potential applications. With the increasing threats of climate change, people are facing dire and irreversible threats on the planet. However, thanks to the innovative and advanced development of artificial intelligence, companies and other stakeholders can make better decisions to mitigate and adapt to these challenges. Alan Yu, the founder of ID Water Technology Co, provided an AI-aid solution in shrimp farming which can boost the economic value compared with the traditional shrimp management methods. The webinar also featured an AI sensor system to reduce carbon emissions in smart buildings. When it comes to solving climate problems, AI has been proven to be an accurate, fast and reliable method to mitigate the effects of climate change on the economy, industry and society.
