How Artificial Intelligence can help improve air quality

how artificial intelligence can help improve air quality

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

When we think of air pollution, we often think of Delhi, perhaps Beijing, or even Shanghai. Yet, our neighbourhoods from across the country as well as cities – from London and Paris to Toronto and New York – struggle with similar issues. Hence, the World Health Organisation (WHO) reports that 9 out of 10 people around the world breathe polluted air.As humans, we contribute the most to air pollution by using energy to drive our vehicles, power our houses, run our data centers, and to travel. So much so that everything we use today was made at a factory that has contributed to air pollution.Today, technology has become an enabler to help address air pollution. It can aid in better measurement, identify its sources, develop policies, forecast, predict, and apply logic to problem solving. It can also provide elaborate opportunities for organisations and governments to optimise their operations and reduce their impact.Thanks to Artificial Intelligence (AI), air pollution can now be addressed more effectively. AI can be leveraged to monitor, inform, influence, measure, detect, forecast, advise, reduce, and manage air pollution in our cities.AI to measure air pollution According to a report by Greenpeace, 22 out of 30 world’s …

the guardian view on artificial intelligence’s revolution: learning but not as we know it | editorial

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Bosses don’t often play down their products. Sam Altman, the CEO of artificial intelligence company OpenAI, did just that when people went gaga over his company’s latest software: the Generative Pretrained Transformer 3 (GPT-3). For some, GPT-3 represented a moment in which one scientific era ends and another is born. Mr Altman rightly lowered expectations. “The GPT-3 hype is way too much,” he tweeted last month. “It’s impressive … but it still has serious weaknesses and sometimes makes very silly mistakes.”OpenAI’s software is spookily good at playing human, which explains the hoopla. Whether penning poetry, dabbling in philosophy or knocking out comedy scripts, the general agreement is that the GPT-3 is probably the best non-human writer ever. Given a sentence and asked to write another like it, the software can do the task flawlessly. But this is a souped up version of the auto-complete function that most email users are familiar with.GPT-3 stands out because it has been trained on more information – about 45TB worth – than anything else. Because the software can remember each and every combination of words it has read, it can work out – through lightning-fast trial-and-error attempts of its 175bn settings – where thoughts …
