Ai for a Liveable Planet

The Liveable Planet programme is one of the eight interdisciplinary programmes that were launched at Leiden University in 2020, SAILS being one of the others. Leiden’s Liveable Planet programme aims to combine scientific, policy, socio-cultural and historical/archaeological research at Leiden University into coherent research with which we can tackle the major challenges of a transition to a habitable planet with ecological sustainability. The programme will  serve as a hub for the wide range of relevant research carried out within Leiden University and welcomes interaction with colleagues interested in contributing to the initiative within as well as outside of Leiden University.

The Netherlands is in the top 5 of most happy people. At the same time, we are experiencing several crises such as the nitrogen, climate, biodiversity, housing, and sustainable energy crisis. The current policy mainly addresses short-term problems in isolation and does not look far ahead, with new problems looming on the horizon. With the Liveable Planet program we will stimulate community based approaches in the global context to help address these crisis. We use the Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 as a starting point and will contribute to achieving these goals at all scales. This requires multidisciplinary  approaches, new methods, instruments and big data. In this lunch presentation I will give an overview of the Liveable Planet programme and provide an overview of the challenges and opportunities where AI might play a significant role.
