The ecological transition finds its answer in artificial intelligence.
It is an obligatory and unpostponable necessity to rewrite the rules for the development of our societies without forgetting to respect the principles of sustainability.
It is an extreme necessity to preserve our planet from the indiscriminate consumption of the resources it provides us with. It is for this reason that this issue is taken into account in almost all summits and conferences around the world.
Artificial intelligence has been identified as one of the options that have arrived to bring solutions.
Artificial intelligence receives more and more funding
We are surrounded by Artificial Intelligences. This technology is already integrated into systems and applications that we use on a daily basis. Today's AI is capable of recognizing different configurations, making diagnoses, learning models and even reasoning. But it is also important to recognize that it finds innovative solutions within science and art.
For this reason, as time goes by, more and more importance is being given to investing funds in different AI systems.
Artificial intelligence and sustainability
Artificial intelligence incorporates a large number of benefits for the environment. And it is possible to apply these benefits thanks to thinking computers.
Among the various processes that computers using AI can perform are, for example, data processing and calculations. In addition, they apply predictive models.
As if this were not enough, also within the field of pharmacology, AI is outstanding as they can develop a greater number of drugs in less time by speeding up research and processing times. This in turn reduces costs.
Cruel animal testing is thus minimized and even eliminated, as AI in a large number of contexts is able to deliver results and high percentages of assertiveness.
The connection that can be drawn between Artificial Intelligence and the sustainable environment is that AI makes it possible to produce energy from renewable energy sources. In addition, the advanced algorithms that these intelligences make possible can determine and forecast certain meteorological phenomena allowing their exploitation. And using the sun or wind as energy.
In the field of sustainability, AI applications will make it possible to monitor the health of the entire globe. These technologies make it possible to study the effects of climate change that concern us so much. As well as the conditions of tectonic plates, ocean waters, natural resources, biodiversity.
With this in mind, Artificial Intelligence moves forward and becomes a preferred tool to support the implementation of the 2015 Paris agreement in the EU concerning climate change.
AI can be wisely used to limit climate change and thus help ecosystems to endure.
Last but not least, Artificial Intelligence will enable more accurate management of any emergency situation, thanks to the execution of highly accurate dynamic simulations of the Earth's natural systems, such as oceans, coasts and the Earth's crust. This implies an improvement of predictive models that allow the anticipation - and consequently the implementation of evacuation plans - of natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes and floods.
