Computational Sustainability

Computational sustainability is an interdisciplinary field of sustainability research, including applied science about the research in sustainable solutions and their implementation. Machine Learning and Data Mining is at the center of this research area linking together diverse application areas such as environmental sciences, atmospheric science, agriculture, or social science.
