This is the approved revision of this page, as well as being the most recent.

The aim of this wiki is to help foster impactful research to tackle climate change, by identifying areas for a useful implementation of machine learning (ML).

The scope of machine learning solutions to address climate change goes far beyond the intersection we address here. Tackling climate change requires cooperation between diverse stakeholders, domain scientists, and action in many forms. Whether you are a machine learning researcher looking to apply your skills to combat climate change, or an early career researcher aiming to have a meaningful impact in your career, a practitioner in one of the domain science areas looking to apply ML to your problem, or for any other reason you are interested in the intersection of climate change and ML, we hope these pages can help inform and facilitate your research!

We welcome your contributions and feedback! This wiki is maintained and moderated by members of CCAI.

Quick start

Topics by Application Area

The pages below provide overviews and resources on topics at the intersection of climate change and machine learning. Mitigation refers to reducing emissions in order to lessen the extent of climate change, while adaptation refers to preparing for the effects of climate change. We also provide overviews of various tools for action -- such as policy, economics, education, and finance -- that can help enable mitigation and adaptation strategies.
