Since AI for Earth’s launch in June 2017, Microsoft has awarded more than 230 grants to recipients in around 60 countries. AI for Earth is Microsoft’s US$50 million, five-year commitment to put artificial intelligence technology in the hands of individuals and organizations around the world who are working to protect our planet across four key areas – agriculture, biodiversity, climate change, and water.
Check out Microsoft AI for Earth’s page and see how AI for Earth puts Microsoft cloud and AI tools in the hands of those working to solve global environmental challenges.
AI for Earth awards grants to projects that use artificial intelligence to address four critical areas that are vital for building a sustainable future.
Technology plays a critical role in ensuring that data collected by citizen scientists are recognized as credible and usable to inform decision-making worldwide, Microsoft’s AI for Earth grant puts us one step closer to taking this innovative program to the world.
This kind of initiative is exactly what our planet needs – something simple, but effective, that can easily be adopted at grass-roots level to make a difference …Bob Glancy, 2019
