Through its collaboration with the Deep Tech for Good initiative, Element AI is sharing insights from its experiences at the forefront of AI technology deployments and its work alongside sustainability experts from industries such as energy, manufacturing and supply chains to improve the efficiency of processes and the impact of sustainability programmes. The core intention of this initiative is to educate decision-makers about how technology can be leveraged for good, applying sustainable, climate-friendly methodologies that also create positive return on investment for businesses.
