“AI is changing the way we work and live. But with climate change impacting seasonal temperatures and rainfalls around the world, can it help make food production more sustainable?” asks The Climate Question podcast, BBC (UK).
Claudia Ringler, Deputy Director of the Environment and Production and Technology Division at the International Food Policy Research Institute was interviewed for the podcast and answered questions about how climate change affects food security and how artificial intelligence could help solve the problem. Ringler pointed out that substantial increases in global surface air temperature (and associated problems) are affecting not only crop yields but also crops’ nutritional value.
