== The purpose of the CCAI Wiki ==
 
The Climate Change AI Wiki is a '''community-driven platform''' summarizing state-of-the-art knowledge and resources on various topics related to machine learning applications for tackling climate change. The wiki is a place to learn about, share, and distill ideas related to climate change and AI, and we hope to grow into an accessible and comprehensive resource for the community.
 
This can entail many different things, currently, most importantly, an overview of application areas for machine learning, background readings, online courses and course materials, lists of conferences, libraries and tools, datasets, and relevant groups and organizations. However, this list mustis not be exclusive! But the CCAI Wiki is explicitly '''not''' intended to be one of the following:
 
* '''A general online encyclopedia''' on content related to machine learning or climate change. There is already great free and other community content on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence and Climate Change at, for instance [https://www.wikipedia.org/ Wikipedia] and other resources. We aim to explicitly address the intersection of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in application areas related to climate change.

* '''An advertising platform'''. The CCAI Wiki aims to provide useful resources for people who want to do research or work at the intersection of Machine Learning and Climate Change. In this role, we want to provide links to relevant working groups, research institutes, and companies. However, this is not a platform for blatant self-promotion. We welcome contributions such as links to relevant projects, survey papers, or institutions and companies, and it is appropriate if you are personally involved. However, these contributions must be provided within the appropriate context and are subject to discussion and review by the Wiki community.
 
* '''A soapbox''': The Wiki further is not meant to be a platform for advocacy, propaganda, or recruitment of any kind, or meant to host opinion pieces, position papers, or comments. The wiki is intended to be written from a neutral point of view. Topics around both climate change and machine learning may be controversial. The CCAI wiki aims to only briefly note or summarize such discussions and point to more readings on the topics.
Please remember that the CCAI Wiki is '''not''' intended to be one of the following:
* '''A news board'''. Compared to other CCAI activities, the Wiki aims to provide more long-term content. For short-lived resources, like events, job opportunities, see our [https://www.climatechange.ai/newsletter Newsletter] or [https://forum.climatechange.ai/ Forum].
* '''NOT: A general online encyclopedia''' on content related to machine learning or climate change. There is already great free and other community content on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence and Climate Change at, for instance [https://www.wikipedia.org/ Wikipedia] and other resources. We aim to explicitly address the intersection of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in application areas related to climate change.
* '''A plain link collection''': Each listed item should be provided in the appropriate context and should have a sentence or two describing its context.
