University of Exeter – using AI to assess climate risk

The Joint Centre for Excellence in Environmental Intelligence (JCEEI) is a strategic partnership between the University of Exeter and the Met Office, in collaboration with the Alan Turing Institute. JCEEI provides the expertise and capability to utilise AI to address the escalating threats of climate and biodiversity change. For example, the Climate Impacts Mitigation, Adaption and Resilience (CLIMAR) framework uses Data Science and AI to integrate multiple sources of data to quantify the risks of climate change on populations, infrastructure and the economy across a range of real-world applications. The centre is working with a city council on how climate change is warming cities and the how to cool down buildings, making them safe during heatwaves; developing a Climate Resilience Demonstrator, using climate projections to assess the future risks of flooding on critical infrastructure including energy, communications, water and sewage networks; collaborating with The Alan Turing Institute, energy futures lab at Imperial College London and the Universities of Edinburgh and Warwick on robust approaches to decision making under climate uncertainty for energy security and net zero.
