Event Details

Computational Sustainability- How to Solve Environment Management Challenges Using AI
Ednali Zehavi

Ednali Zehavi

Obtaining data and creating prediction models are integral parts of environmental management. An environmental scientist collects and analyzes samples and then creates prediction models and mitigation programs as part of regulatory and best practice requirements. Applying machine learning algorithms results in improved prediction models without the constraints and restrictive assumptions that are typical for a traditional (deterministic and stochastic) approach.

 

This talk will give an overview of several research projects that used machine learning (which is a part of AI) to solve environmental management challenges related to mining. We will discuss the differences between machine learning and traditional approaches and how the two methods can work together. We will highlight myths of Big Data and will discuss how we can create algorithms to support the modelling with machine learning.
