Global Warming: Calculating Risk
with Vinton Cerf3rd May 2022 Tuesday
8:00 am – 10:00 am NSW | ZoomVint Cerf is recognized as one of “the fathers of the Internet”. Join us, as Vint explores how Technology will drive the change with Climate Change and Global Warming.
Global warming is underway and it is unlikely we can do more than delay its impact. We must start thinking more about coping with — than stopping — the effects. Computing has a role to play. No, not limiting the data centres — we need the computational power and we are reducing power requirements per FLOP as we speak. We need to capture and analyse a lot of sensor data to predict impacts. We need to use machine learning to control pollution, consumption, distribution of energy. We need to use our knowledge of DNA and biology to craft food sources that survive at higher temperatures and use less water. We need to plan for potentially massive migration from areas growing uninhabitable. Let’s use our computing power to enhance our ability to design responses to this clear and present threat.
Join Vint Cerf – WORLD AUTHORITY FIGURE IN TECHNOLOGY – as he explores the emerging technologies and the impacts they will have on business, culture, Climate Change and Global Warming.
This is a highly interactive event.
We will collaborate and collectively discuss issues, solutions and actionable steps.
SPEAKER – WORLD AUTHORITY FIGURE – Vinton Gray Cerf known as a “Father of the Internet,” Cerf is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the Internet.
In December 1997, President Bill Clinton presented the U.S. National Medal of Technology to Cerf and his colleague, Robert E. Kahn, for founding and developing the Internet. In 2004, Cerf was the recipient of the ACM Alan M. Turing award (sometimes called the “Nobel Prize of Computer Science”) and in 2005 he was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George Bush.
YOU & THE #BBGTHINKTANK
Vint’s “knowledge share” will be followed by the #bbgthinktank, where you will breakout into a group of 5-7 delegates and explore how you can implement the learnings from Vint into your organisation. These insights will be ‘unpacked’ and discussed.
I’m sure you will find this forum useful, informative and stimulating.
If you’re interested in learning, collaborating and growing with us, join us at this forum.
You will be provided with a Zoom link prior to the meeting.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Onwards and upwards,
The BBG Climate Action Forum Members
Feel free to join us on our other forums.
