Artificial intelligence (AI) is the new buzzword in almost every field—using data solutions to complex problems in healthcare, education and various other sectors. But can AI be used to deal with one of the biggest threats to mankind in recent times—climate change? The answer is in the affirmative for many.

To be sure, the technology cannot battle climate change per se. But its analytical prowess and data-finding skills can be used for mitigation, improving weather forecast and finding adaptation measures, according to scientists.

UN bats for AI
