Environmental Intelligence: Data Science & AI for Sustainable Futures

The University of Exeter's Centre for Doctoral Training in Environmental Intelligence: Data Science & AI for Sustainable Futures will pioneer new research in using Data Science and Artificial Intelligence to understand the complex interactions between the environment, climate, natural ecosystems, human social and economic systems, and health. The increasing availability of large and complex data sets from diverse sources, including environmental monitoring; satellite remote sensing; climate modelling; electronic medical records; and social media and contributions from citizen science, presents and exceptional opportunity to transform our understanding of both the effects of environmental change and our planet-transforming power.

The Centre is now recruiting for 2021! Find out more here.
