The author provided a thoughtfully scripted guided tour through the world of artificial intelligence (AI). The primary focus of the storyline centered on the potential role that AI could play in global warming. There were many intriguing life-changing scenarios to choose from.

AI is most definitely here to stay. For many of us, it's become a part of our daily lives. Since the inception of the internet revolution, it has become a mainstay of society. Most certainly, its proliferation around the wo

We may be running out of time to reduce or prevent catastrophic climate change. This short book looks at how we may use AI to help us make decisions, project outcomes, recommend paths.
The first part looks at what AI is, how Big Data uses data from the IOT and RFIDs as well as everyone's shopping habits. AI though can also use posts and photos on social media and every book or research study scanned.
The second part looks at how the globe is warming in self-feeding cycles; bare or flooded ground

The Ugly Fight: Unleashing Artificial Intelligence Against Global Warming by R. Amblee is a great exploration of both global warming and artificial intelligence. Amblee has a gift for explaining difficult ideas in easy to digest bits for the average person. In other words, you don’t have to be a brainiac or gifted scientist to understand what Amblee presents in this short book. In The Ugly Fight, Amblee argues that artificial intelligence can be used in the fight against global warming while als ...more

At the moment the biggest current threat to our world and society as we know it is without a doubt global warming. The effects of it become more and more noticeable as each year passes and I can’t help but become increasingly worried about what the world will look like in 50 years.

But with the progression of technology that has been happening at a exponential rate surely we can make something to stop this detriment to our planet from continuing.

This question is tackled fantastically in this bo

Author R Amblee looks into the intense climate change problems that plague our world. While learning about them can be daunting and overwhelming, Amblee has come up with practical and interesting solutions as to how we can help to fight against climate change with the help of artificial intelligence. Amblee believes by using it, we can drastically reduce our carbon footprint and work to help not only protect current places under threat, but help to revive those that are practically destroyed.

Using Artificial Intelligence or AI to combat Climate change may seem like a novel idea, primarily because most people don’t realize how extensive the AI technology is already and how it can be implemented to our benefit. I found the book to be very interesting and encouraging that we might actually have some solutions to some problems if our politicians can get out of their own way and start working on this before it’s too late. Some of the facts presented are worrisome and may make you paranoi ...more

I am very impressed by this book and blown away with the loads of information and research. I really liked the conversational tone of this book that conveyed complex information in a very easy to understand manner that then allowed you to think and come up with a few ideas of your own. I think more persons need to read “The Ugly Fight” to inform themselves and to start practicing better life skills and to question and demand more from our organizations and governments. We all are in this togethe ...more

Amblee approaches global warming and artificial intelligence as an engineer and as a futurist. He understands the technologies, and he sees where they can go in the future. He writes about global warming and the problems of carbon reduction and removal, then explains the major solutions that are being explored and analyzes their probabilities and their drawbacks.

In the later part of the book, Amblee discusses the benefits and risks of artificial intelligence, acknowledging that jobs will be lost

This book attempts to explore the use of AI in our fight against climate change. The conversational tone adopted throughout makes reading this book an enjoyable one. However, the title is misleading as the AI discussed in this book is secondary if not insignificant to the underlying technological solutions being highlighted. This book leads readers to ultimately wonder if AI can truly be a game-changer - a far cry from the supposed intention of this book.
