Closed call: Digital Transformation and AI for Energy and Climate Security

Submission deadline extended to Monday 5 April, 11:59 pm PDT!

Open call to researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology and researchers at Digital Futures with partner Stockholm University.

The C3.ai Digital Transformation Institute (C3DTI) was established in 2020 by C3 AI and Microsoft and co-led by UC Berkeley and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with consortium partners Carnegie Mellon University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Stanford University, and University of Chicago, and with high-performance computing support from LBL and the National Center for Supercomputing Application at UIUC.

The goal of C3DTI is to catalyze cooperative research activities and advances in mathematical, statistical, and computing research, combining machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT) and ethics and social responsibility in the development and fielding of technology.
