I2UD’s AI Climate Proof of Concept nearing completion

AI Climate, I2UD’s initiative to use Artificial Intelligence to identify climate change-related risks affecting poor urban communities, is nearing completion of the Proof of Concept stage.  The Proof of Concept, developed in partnership with Dymaxion Labs and the Honduran Earth Sciences Institute (IHCIT), has been carried out using the city of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, as the site for development and testing. The image below shows some of the city’s informal settlements at risk from flooding identified in the Proof of Concept, in a region where climate change is increasing the frequency and intensity of rainfall, including storms and hurricanes.
