About This Video

Living through a pandemic in the era of climate change it can be easy to sense doom and gloom. Yet living in the era data science, for the machine learning community there has not been a better time to act than now. This talk will introduce the audience to planetary health and some of the most pressing issues facing us (and our planet), cover a review of the state-of-the-art in artificial intelligence and data science methods in planetary health informatics and present a summary of the latest research, and finally highlight opportunities for budding and experienced data scientists in this rapidly growing and pertinent field.

This workshop was conducted by Sara Khalid, University Research Lecturer and Senior Research Associate at University of Oxford.
