Rishi Vaish, the Vice President of IBM’s Sustainability Software division, believes that artificial intelligence (AI) can significantly solve climate change and data problems. Climate change is a complex issue that requires the analysis of vast amounts of data from various sources, including weather patterns, energy usage, and land use changes.

According to Vaish, AI can help address this challenge by analyzing data and providing insights to inform climate action. For example, AI algorithms can help identify the most significant sources of greenhouse gas emissions or predict the impact of climate change on different regions.

Vaish also highlights the importance of making climate data more accessible and transparent. He notes that democratizing access to data makes it possible for individuals, businesses, and policymakers to take informed climate action. Furthermore, he emphasizes that integrating AI solutions into existing climate action frameworks is essential.
