AI for the study of Environmental Risks (AI4ER)

UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training

Carbon capture will play a pivotal role in reducing the planet’s overall carbon emissions. AI and machine learning techniques are now being successfully implemented in these fields, from molecular to operational levels to improve processes and to develop state of the art technologies. 

Carbon credits are a permit or certificate allowing an organisation the right to emit a set amount of carbon dioxide. They have been devised as a way for organisations to manage and offset their carbon emissions by investing in projects that absorb or reduce emissions.  One of AI4ER’s major partners in the field of carbon credits is the Cambridge Centre for Carbon Credits (4C). 4C’s mission is to create a trusted decentralised marketplace to exponentially increase the number of real nature-based conservation and restoration projects.  

Affiliated Depts and Partners that work in this field include the Dept of Computer Science and Technology, Dept of Plant Sciences, Dept of Zoology, Cambridge Conservation Initiative.
