The NSF and NSERC-funded Artificial Intelligence and Biodiversity Change (ABC) Global Climate Center brings together ecologists and computer scientists from six universities in the United States and Canada to develop new AI-enabled, data-supported approaches for understanding the impacts of climate change on biodiversity. The Center will develop and implement a variety of AI-based methods and tools for integration and analysis of biodiversity data from remote sensing imagery from satellites and low-flying aircrafts, ground-based visual and audio sensors, DNA sequences, and citizen science efforts, enabling the global monitoring, analysis, and assessment of biodiversity changes. The Center is pursuing these goals through a broad network of stakeholders from the U.S., UK and EU, plus Canada, Australia, Africa, India, and Central America, including representatives from academic institutions, multi-institution research collaborations, governmental agencies, NGOs, and industry.
