REMI

Reducing Emissions through Machine Intelligence

We look forward to coaching your team on how to adopt AI for GHG reduction. Upon completion of the program, you will be able to broadly apply new skills and knowledge in AI and ML further to increase business effectiveness in areas outside of emission reduction.

A Phased Approach

REMI is designed to progress companies, from startups to small and medium businesses to multinational corporations, along the AI Adoption Spectrum, focusing on GHG reduction projects. We take a phased approach to set your team up for success at each crucial junction of your project - from ideation to proof-of-concept model.

The program is structured to help you form a business case for investing in AI adoption, through a build model, for your management and investment team. With clear outcomes and progress at each milestone.

  • Phase 1: Foundations

    Participants gain foundational AI knowledge and create a roadmap for potential AI projects focused on GHG reduction. This programming phase includes hands-on training opportunities and facilitated sessions with a multi-disciplinary team of project managers, scientists, educators and domain experts.

  • Phase 2: Commitments

    Companies define, specify and scope a machine learning (ML) project; and mitigate the risk of introducing AI and ML projects into various operations, processes and business lines.

  • Phase 3: GHG Reduction

    Teams advance a selected ML emission reduction project to a proof-of-concept model, and upon graduation, can broadly apply new skills and knowledge in AI and ML to further increase business effectiveness in areas outside of emission reduction.
