A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of presenting at the National Geographic Explorer’s Festival in London. This was an amazing opportunity to meet the inspirational Explorers and listen to them talk about AI solutions to conservation problems around the world. In the afternoon I spoke about my work on machine learning and remote sensing for monitoring glacier and ice sheet melting, and then participate in a panel discussion about the challenges of applying AI to environmental problems. The event was livestreamed and is now archived here (my part starts at 1:48).
The work I presented is supported by Microsoft and National Geographic through their AI for Earth scheme.
