Description

In this course, explore on how technologies like artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and data science can help with sustainability efforts. We begin by getting clear on multiple pieces of common terminology: like carbon footprint, carbon offsets, carbon neutral and carbon negative. It discusses GHG protocol and how a corporation can start to estimate their different scopes of emissions. We then look at the kinds of sustainability goals and indicators that most organizations are starting to concentrate on, then explore specific technologies like cloud computing and AI, with several real-world examples of how they’re being successfully used to advance sustainability goals—and discuss a few challenges, like energy consumption of AI models and technologies like NFTs.
