APEX - Artificial Intelligence for Policy Excellence in the Climate Crisis
Grant amount: DKK 10,998,213

Francisco Pereira says: “As the climate continues to impact our world, policymakers require advanced scientific simulation tools to navigate the intricate challenges and uncertainties that arise. While existing tools offer detail, they often fall short due to their narrow focus and resource-consuming performance. The APEX project addresses this challenge by introducing an integrated platform powered by machine learning, which synergizes various simulation tools to address the entire problem, not just isolated parts, while simultaneously optimising their performance. Utilizing today’s immense computational power, APEX explores and virtually tests a vast array of options, providing policymakers with a comprehensive and transparent analysis of a wide range of alternatives.

APEX will be applied in crucial domains such as transport, energy, and the environment, areas that have significant societal impact. Committed to the principles of human-aligned AI, APEX ensures that its artificial intelligence operates with a focus on transparency, fairness, and accountability, aligning technological advancements with human values and ethical considerations.”
