AI Earth Summit 2022
April 21 @ 11:30 am - 7:00 pm
As the cycle of climate tech innovation and investment accelerates, emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning will continue to play a growing role in sustainable development. Join us for an engaging and inspiring day of conversations and collaboration centered around the planet and our technology’s place within it. This year’s Earth Summit will be hybrid—the first time in-person activities are returning since 2019’s event—there are even greater opportunities to collaborate with fellow sustainability-driven minds across the Southern California region and beyond.
In mid-March, AI LA kicked off an Open Innovation Challenge with LA County to invite geospatial scientists, machine learning engineers, and designers to build teams to solve a high-priority problem in LA County involving invasive pests destroying our trees. Teams are currently using satellite imagery to develop an alert system that could be used by LA County and other regions that are battling this growing issue of invasive pests killing our trees. During AI LA’s Earth Summit, teams will present their solutions and compete to win a $10,000 grant, office hours with Starburst Aerospace, free corporate services with Wilson Sonsini, and other ecosystem support.
Meanwhile, speaker panels at Earth Summit ranging from sustainable aerospace innovation to climate tech investment will inspire further conversations. LA County Board Supervisors Kuehl and Solis will be providing opening remarks about AI LA’s Open Innovation Challenge.
