Google introduces AI-based planning tools to combat extreme heat caused by climate change. #AI #ClimateChange

Google has released a new set of online tools to help civil servants and community organizers combat climate change. The company already sends extreme weather alerts to users in affected locations, and has now added extreme heat alerts. The alerts provide information on everything from start and end dates of heatwaves to medical issues and how to mitigate their impacts. Google is partnering with the Global Heat Health Information Network to ensure accuracy and relevance of information. 
Google has also created Tree Canopy, a feature within the Environmental Insights Explorer app that combines AI and aerial imagery to help cities better understand their current tree coverage and plan urban forestry initiatives. The feature is already in use in more than a dozen cities and will be expanded to nearly 350 cities around the world, including Atlanta, Sydney, Lisbon and Paris. In addition, Google offers AI to help plan the installation of cool roofs that reflect heat from the sun rather than absorbing it like traditional roofs.
