VIDEO – Integrated Modelling Partnership: Introducing AI computational solutions to sustainability problems for non-technical audiences

This infographic video has been produced by BC3- Basque Centre for Climate Change to graphically illustrate an introduction TO k.LAB and Integrated Modelling for non-technical audiences. We present the Philosophy embracing the FAIR principles and the Technology behind a cutting edge modelling environment for Knowledge Integration. K.LAB is a web accessible software that uses the meaning of information, its semantics, to integrate knowledge through Artificial Intelligence and builds computational solutions to environmental, policy and sustainability problems. Through this modelling environment, researchers can contribute knowledge from their discipline and seamlessly connect it to the knowledge generated by others through the use of shared semantics. The result is a powerful tool where users can enter their queries and k.LAB is able to select the most appropriate knowledge available building for the first time new knowledge from the integration of the existing one.

VIDEO: The role of ruminants on climate change mitigation. “The good and the bad”

This infographic video has been produced as part of the BC3- Basque Centre for Climate Change contribution to the COP25 in Madrid (Pabellón España-5th December 2019) and under the H2020 project iSAGE. The video attempts to graphically illustrate why ruminants are not to be blamed for climate change. Different arguments are shown regarding the differences between emissions from biogenic methane from ruminants and fossil fuel CO2, differences in production systems and the uncertainties regarding N2O emissions and the baseline of reference to compare emissions from ruminants compared with other activities. The video idea and script have been developed by Agustin del Prado (BC3) and Pablo Manzano (University Of Helsinki), animated and produced by Yelena Grigorenko and voice over by Bosco Lliso (BC3).
