Event description

Description

Come to the Oxford Foundry where you’ll hear from some of Oxford University’s startup founders that are using AI to help us tackle climate change across a number of domains from agriculture and deforestation to climate prediction and transportation.

We can’t solve today’s challenges with yesterday’s thinking. Through TED Talk-style pitching sessions and guided networking, learn about the novel ways Oxford’s startup founders are using AI to help fight climate change.

Be sure to read this short article by National Geographic, "How AI can tackle climate change"
