Panel discussion and research talk: Computational advances in climate risk assessment

Published on 27 Oct 2022, 15:40
Climate change poses significant risks to human welfare as well as biodiversity. Improved modeling is needed to better understand the chain of impacts, and to mitigate or avoid the worst outcomes. Microsoft and university researchers are collaborating to address this important challenge, by bringing complementary expertise to bear on critical problems. This session will feature faculty experts in carbon emissions measurement and climate risk, in conversation with Microsoft experts in the fields of causal machine learning and deep learning. Together they will address the importance and challenges of carbon accounting and climate risk prediction, and how computational approaches can improve modeling of each.
