Background information on OpenAI collab, benefits of AI for climate/ESG
Climate Policy Radar’s collaboration with OpenAI is founded on combining OpenAI’s state of the art expertise in language models with Climate Policy Radar’s groundbreaking approach to unblocking access to and deepening knowledge of climate law and policy, which is critical to combating climate change. In this moment of time where the benefits and risks of this AI are becoming increasingly clear, transparency, safety, and bias mitigation are key values that underpin our work introducing this technology to the climate law and policy world.
