Environmental Intelligence Grand Challenge 2022

Environmental Intelligence - Grand Challenge 2022 University of Exeter, 11-15 July 2022

What is Environmental Intelligence?

Environmental Intelligence is the application of data science and AI to solve environmental challenges. Large and complex data sets from diverse sources are increasingly available for environmental research, including ecological monitoring, remote sensing and satellite imagery, climate modelling, weather observations, energy grids and social media. Such data presents an exceptional opportunity to transform our understanding of environmental change and create solutions to the sustainability challenges that dominate the 21st.


What is a Grand Challenge?

The EIGC2022 will bring together interdisciplinary research teams to work intensively on environmental intelligence challenges faced by our partner organisations. Postgraduates and early career researchers will develop solutions that use data in novel and creative ways, bringing together data science and AI methods with domain knowledge and social context. The challenges for 2022 are presented by our partners: Friends of the Earth, World Wildlife Fund, the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, and the Global Carbon Project.


What else will be happening?

During the week, teams will work on their chosen challenge with input from our partner organisations. Alongside the challenges, there will be a range of other activities to stimulate creativity, including creative writing, art, guest speakers and social events – see the Activities page for more information.
