Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation or approximation of human intelligence in machines. AI is a major scientific topic and is being used today across different industries from finance to healthcare. Within sustainability and environmental contexts Circular Economy (CE) is a major topic aiming to eliminate waste and pollution, circulate products and materials and regenerate nature. In recent years, AI has been suggested as a potential game-changer in Circular Economy ambitions.
In this session provide a brief introduction to what AI and the Circular Economy actually mean. We then discuss the current ideas, solutions, and policies around how AI is being integrated into the Circular Economy ambitions of companies, governments and countries.
