IJCAI-13 tutorial on Topics in Computational Sustainability
Carla Gomes and Zico Kolter very recently organised a computational sustainability tutorial at IJCAI-13. The tutorial was centred around three sustainability problems: energy generation and demand forecasting, energy disaggregation, and control of power networks. I found it really interesting to see these AI and sustainability problems all grouped together, as a question I've discussed with Jack before is: "what problem problem should I work on in order to have the greatest impact on sustainability?" Furthermore, Zico has made some of the data and MATLAB code used for some of the demonstrations available online, which would be a great starting point for a dissertation project.
