Applied AI: One Helping Hand To Address Environmental Sustainability and Emissions

Article

Can Artificial Intelligence (AI) really be used to help us fight climate change and build a more sustainable world? The simple answer is yes! The evolution of AI, with our ability to apply this technology and drive adoption, is enabling us to solve problems that previously seemed impossible. Here’s how Ericsson is working to lower one part of our supply chain’s carbon footprint by identifying and reducing CO2e emissions by using applied AI to optimize product transportation.

Why is essential?
