When it comes to artificial intelligence, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a no-brainer.
But when it comes to the environment, it's a little more complicated.
That's why the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts is working on an AI system that could help fight climate change, Quartz reports.
The project, called AI for the Environment, is a joint initiative between the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and the European Space Agency.
The idea is to use satellites to map the Earth's surface and use artificial intelligence to predict where and how changes in the Earth's crust could affect plants and animals, according to a press release.
In this case, the system would use facial recognition technology to determine where and how plants and animals are located on the Earth's surface.
It would also use data from satellites to predict which plants and animals are in danger of being destroyed by climate change.
The idea is to create an AI system that's energy efficient and doesn't suffer from "catastrophic forgetting," as the press release puts it.
The project's goal is to create an AI system with "enhanced visual abilities" and "enhanced natural language and speech processing abilities
