Visualizing Climate Change

Mila > AI for humanity > Visualizing Climate Change

Our Project

Our project, called “This Climate Does Not Exist“, aims to raise awareness regarding the devastating effects of climate change by allowing people to imagine what it would look like if extreme climate events affected the places they hold dear.

We do this by using cutting-edge techniques from artificial intelligence — generative adversarial networks, or GANs, which allow us to transform places from what they look like now to what they can look like if affected by heavy flooding, smog or wildfires.

Bringing together a team of multidisciplinary researchers, we have designed a website that will help viewers overcome their cognitive biases around climate change and inspire them to take action.
