AI could tackle climate change and deforestation. Could artificial intelligence help to save our planet?

According to a new Forum-PwC report, released in Davos, Switzerland, there are eight ways in which artificial intelligence (AI) can help save the planet. The first being the use of autonomous and connected electric vehicles, as the technology will catalyse the transition to mobility on-demand. Through route and traffic optimisation, eco-driving algorithms, the programmed platooning of cars to traffic, and ride-sharing systems, transportation could contribute significantly less to greenhouse gas emissions. With distributed energy grids, AI could perfect the predictability of demand – and in turn supply – for renewable energy. This could amplify energy storage, efficiency, and load management, whilst also integrating renewables for better pricing for market incentives. Smart agriculture and food systems could be developed through AI, through robotics collecting data, making ...
