Karen McKinnon featured in Inc. — How Scientists Are Using AI to Understand Climate Change

The climate is changing faster than ever before. Machine learning could be a key understanding how–and to what extent. 

That’s according to Karen A. McKinnon, assistant professor at UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. During the Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems, which is being held online this week, McKinnon spoke about the ways scientists can use artificial intelligence, in this case machine learning, to make critical observations about the ways that weather patterns change.
