CIMMYT at COP25
December 3, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm CET
CIMMYT scientist Jelle Van Loon will be participating in two sessions of the UN Climate Change conference, COP25.
Data-Driven Insights for Meaningful Climate Solutions
When: Tuesday, December 3, 2019, at 5:00 p.m.
Where: Action Hub, IFEMA
Van Loon will be presenting a concept proposal on data visualization and AI integration for sustainability, during a session hosted by Qlik.
Qlik & experts will discuss real-world, data-driven collaborations and actions that are taking place on the front lines in the fight against climate change. Leveraging data-intensive technologies such as AI and machine learning, new predictive models can show which actions drive the most impact to inform the creation and execution of new policies. All examples can be replicated by private sector audience members and city and national government actors for action beyond the session and conference.
The event will be streamed live and available on the COP25 website afterwards.
