A Selected Summary of AI for Computational Sustainability

AAAI Conferences

This paper and summary talk broadly survey computational sustainability research. Rather than a detailed treatment of the research projects in the area, which is beyond the scope of the paper and talk, the paper includes a meta-survey, pointing to edited collections and overviews in the literature for the interested reader. Computational sustainability research has been broadly characterized by AI methods employed, sustainability areas addressed, and contributions made to (typically, human) decision-making. The paper addresses these characterizations as well, which will facilitate a deeper synthesis later, to include the potential for developing sophisticated and holistic AI decision-making and advisory agents.


Editorial Introduction to the Summer and Fall Issues

AI Magazine

This editorial introduction provides an overview of artificial intelligence for computational sustainability, and introduces the special issue articles that appear in this issue and the previous issue of AI Magazine. The emerging interdisciplinary field of computational sustainability (Gomes 2009) draws techniques from computer science, information science, mathematics, statistics, operations research, and related disciplines to help balance environmental and socioeconomic needs for sustainable development. Artificial intelligence (AI) techniques play a key role in computational sustainability research, enabling the solution of sustainability problems that involve modeling or decision making in dynamic and uncertain environments. Since 2011, the main AAAI conference has included a special track on computational sustainability, encouraging AI research in this area and broader participation of sustainability researchers in the AAAI community. Sustainable solutions must balance between environmental, societal, and economic demands (United Nations General Assembly 2005).


Computational Sustainability: Editorial Introduction to the Summer and Fall Issues

AI Magazine

Computational sustainability problems, which exist in dynamic environments with high amounts of uncertainty, provide a variety of unique challenges to artificial intelligence research and the opportunity for significant impact upon our collective future. This editorial introduction provides an overview of artificial intelligence for computational sustainability, and introduces the special issue articles that appear in this issue and the previous issue of AI Magazine.
