CleanTechnica: Microsoft ‘AI For Earth’ Project Will Democratize Access To Climate Change Data

CleanTechnica: Microsoft ‘AI For Earth’ Project Will Democratize Access To Climate Change Data. “Information is power. Until recently, information about the condition of the earth’s environment has been accessible only to a limited number of people — climate scientists, researchers, and government officials among them. On December 11 — the two-year anniversary of the Paris climate accords — Brad Smith, president and chief legal officer of Microsoft, announced his company will invest $50 million over the next 5 years to democratize access to the data available about the environment available from the thousands of land, sea, and atmospheric sensors in place around the world using AI or artificial intelligence.”
