Welcome to Ecoformatics LLC – an independent company that was founded to bring the latest scientific advances and market research in clean technology and big data to individuals and companies by providing cutting-edge information and technical know-how throughinformation products and consulting services.
Who’s the company for?
It’s for anyone who is interested in understanding how artificial intelligence and data science are helping to solve problems related to the earth and environment – in water, agriculture, energy and so much more.
If you’re a scientist, engineer or someone who’s interested in technology, our ebooks, workshops, courses, webinars and reports will keep you up to date on the latest research and tech happenings. If you’re interested in what’s happening in the market, we provide a look at funding news, in-depth analyses of the startups and companies working in the space and market trends. If you’re interested in career changes or simply working on problems that make a meaningful impact on the earth and humanity, we regularly post jobs and openings in this sector.
If you are a startup or are a company interested in our services, we provide consulting services to help you understand, research and build the algorithms and tools needed to integrate data science with your clean tech problem.
Why start this company?
When I was working as a researcher in universities and national labs, in startups as a data scientist and engineer and later at big companies, I found that I had a hard time keeping up with all the interesting and valuable work that was being done at the intersection of clean tech and data science. Both fields are so vast and there’s so much interesting work being done – both by cutting edge researchers and companies and organizations in the field – that getting all that information together was taking way too much time.
So, I started this company because I wanted to make it easier for everyone who’s interested in solving the problems facing the Earth using data science and artificial intelligence to access information about the latest scientific advances, technical breakthroughs and market analyses.The goal is to save your time and provide articles, links and details on how problems are being solved in this space.That way, we can all go out and build more solutions in all the different sectors!
The last couple of months have been interesting from a climate viewpoint - we’ve seen a record number of climate related disasters around the globe - drought, floods, fires, heat waves…..and it looks like this is probably going to be what our planet will look like in the near future. Add to that the COP26 conference that is scheduled for October 31st - and climate, sustainability and technology are front page news! So, let’s talk about one of the technologies in the news - artificial intelligence (AI) and its impact on climate, water, agriculture, energy, forestry, ecosystems and other sectors in clean technology . AI and its subset of tools - machine learning (ML), data science and statistics - are being touted as one of the key technologies in solving the problems facing the planet today. And while these technologies are certainly powerful - applying them effectively to solve problems in clean tech is another issue altogether. AI has been used by scientists in different clean tech se
We're in the processes of building a couple of fantastic new offerings that many folks in our community have asked for - so blog posts will be limited for a few months. Our jobs portal will still be updated regularly to make sure that all our members can keep up with what's happening in the sector. We can't wait to share what's happening at our end!
Every Earth Day we hear from companies around the world about their sustainability efforts - the gallons of water they have saved, the reductions in energy use, the systems they have converted from fossil-fuel to renewable energy, the ecosystems they have restored and, more recently the amount of carbon they have offset. On the face of it, these are amazing and hopeful numbers - the very fact that corporations are paying so much attention to sustainability and the environment is testament to the fact that consumer and citizen pressure is yielding results. In fact, with every successive year, it seems that companies and organizations are able to sequester more carbon, minimize greenhouse gas emissions and thus mitigate climate change. What allows companies to make these claims - especially with respect to carbon and greenhouse gas emissions? The way that most companies claim these credits is through carbon markets or “cap and trade” programs. In these programs, a community or a no
