AI for Nature: From Science to Impact

Computation has fundamentally changed the way we study nature. New data collection technology, such as GPS, high-definition cameras, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), genotyping, and crowdsourcing, are generating data about the natural world that are orders of magnitude richer than any previously collected. AI can turn these data into a high-resolution information source about living organisms and the planet’s biodiversity, enabling scientific inquiry, conservation, and policy decisions. The talk will introduce a new field of science, imageomics, and present a vision and examples of AI as a trustworthy partner both in science and biodiversity conservation, discussing opportunities and challenges.

Why Food Systems Hold the Key to Reversing Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss

Feeding 10 billion people sustainably by 2050 while conserving nature and addressing climate change is humanity’s greatest challenge. Almost a billion people worldwide experience food insecurity, while an estimated 40% of all food produced is lost or wasted. At the same time, food and agriculture are the main drivers of biodiversity loss globally, constituting a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions, with a large climate impact.

Innovative paths to collaborative impact: Assessing engaged research

Engaged research can help ensure that the evidence generated by research transforms from potentially useful to actually usable. But more evidence is needed about the conditions and components that allow engaged research to deliver impact and improved outcomes across a range of sectors.
