Big Data and Climate Change

Big Data and Climate Change

16th July 2018
14:30 - 16:30

Climate change is already having a substantive effect on the international economy, as well as to society and the biosphere. By 2030, it is estimated that the costs associated with adapting to a shift in global temperatures of just 2 percent could cost between $70 and $100 billion per year.

The APGDA will bring together a panel of leading figures from the IEA, parliament, and government to discuss how big and open data is being used to find solutions to the problems posed by climate change, as well as how Britain can become a world leader for this emerging field of study in data science.

Key Questions:

  1. How is data being used to identify problems resulting from climate change?
  2. In what ways is data visualisation a useful tool for finding solutions to emerging issues?
  3. How is this data supply chain being integrated into wider scientific and economic networks?

Speakers include:

  • Daniel Zeichner MP: Chair, All Party Parliamentary Group on Data Analytics
  • Colin McKinnon: Chief Executive, Institute for Enviromental Analytics
  • Mark Webb: Research Scientist, Met Office
  • Marieke Beckmann: Research Lead, Energy and Environment, National Physical Laboratory
  • Antoinette Sandbach MP: Member, Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee (TBC)
