AI-Accelerated Assessments of Climate and Weather Risks

This event is part of the 2023-2024 Workshop Series, AI and Climate Change: Global Sustainability in an Era of Artificial Intelligence, organized by the Penn Program on Regulation and co-sponsored by the Environmental Innovations Initiative, Kleinman Center for Energy Policy, Center for Technology, Innovation & Competition, Warren Center for Network and Data Sciences, and Wharton Climate Center. Prof. Tapio Schneider, Theodore Y. Wu Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at Caltech and a Visiting Researcher at Google, is the featured speaker. In this workshop, Prof. Schneider will discuss how artificial intelligence can be used to generate better assessments of climate-related risks. Access to accurate information about climate risks is essential for a wide range of critical decisions, from individual real estate purchases to municipal rainwater management and the pricing of insurance for wildfire risks. Currently, the demand for detailed climate and weather risk assessments surpasses the capabilities of existing climate models. To bridge this gap, we need a transformative improvement in both the accuracy and usability of climate predictions. Prof. Schneider will argue for achieving this advancement by leveraging artificial intelligence, building upon domain-specific knowledge, and generating ensembles of moderately high-resolution climate simulations. Such simulations can then anchor an ecosystem of detailed hazard models. Prof. Schneider’s lecture will be followed by a conversation moderated by Cary Coglianese, Edward B. Shils Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania, between Prof. Schneider and Michael Mann, Presidential Distinguished Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Science at the University of Pennsylvania and author of the recent book, Our Fragile Moment: How Lessons from Earth’s Past Can Help Us Survive the Climate Crisis. Questions and discussion with the audience will follow the lecture and conversation. Snacks and other refreshments will be served. This workshop, which is made possible in part by funding from Penn’s Environmental Innovations Initiative, also is co-sponsored by the Penn Center for Science, Sustainability and the Media. It is free of charge, open to the public, and will be held in person. Click here if you wish to register in advance.
