In this new podcast in English from Data Stand-Up! Jesus talks to Peetak Mitra, Scientist at PARC and member of Core Team at Climate Change AI. Peetak is a Member of Research Staff/Scientist-II at the fabled Palo Alto Research Center (formerly Xerox PARC), located in the heart of Silicon Valley. At PARC, he works on developing novel AI/ML algorithms and impactful technologies across projects in distributed sensor systems (DARPA Ocean-of-Things), predictive maintenance using Internet-of-Things (Novity), climate modeling/policy, and geoengineering (MCB). In addition to his employment at PARC, he is passionate about using my knowledge for mitigating the negative effects of climate change and am associated with the Climate Change AI group as a Core Team member.
Climate Change AI is a global initiative to catalyze impactful work at the intersection of climate change and machine learning. Climate Change AI (CCAI) is an organization composed of volunteers from academia and industry who believe that tackling climate change requires concerted societal action, in which machine learning can play an impactful role. Since it was founded in June 2019, CCAI has led the creation of a global movement in climate change and machine learning, encompassing researchers, engineers, entrepreneurs, investors, policymakers, companies, and NGOs.
