IBM undertakes a major step in contributing towards Climate and Environmental Research

In the current news space, climate change has acquired a major coverage both in traditional and digital medium. In align to the climate situation; IBM is stimulating the global science community with a massive infusion of computing resources, weather data, and cloud services to help researchers and scientists examine the effects of varied climatic situation, and also explore causes and scenario to mitigate its adverse effects.

The multinational technology has pledged to help by ceding $200 million for up to five climate-related projects that has the capability to offer the greatest potential impact on the environment, and then it will share the experiment’s result broadly. For the project to begin, it has invited members of the global science community to propose research projects that will benefit from World Community Grid, an IBM Citizenship initiative that basically provides researchers with enormous amounts of free computing power to conduct large-scale environment and health-related investigations.

This hefty resource is powered by the millions of devices of more than 730,000 worldwide volunteers who have signed up to support scientific research and investigation. Scientists who have submitted their respective proposals for climate-related experiments may also apply to receive free IBM cloud storage resources, which will help them work in their experiment data in a more secured, responsive, and convenient manner.

“Computational research is a powerful tool for advancing research on climate change and related environmental challenges,” said Jennifer Ryan Crozier, Vice President of IBM Corporate Citizenship and President of the IBM International Foundation.

IBM has never abandoned mankind while proceeding towards technology; with this initiative it will support many potential areas like: watersheds and fresh water resources, tracking and predicting human or animal migration patterns based on changing weather conditions, analyzing weather that affects pollution, analyzing and improving crop or livestock resilience and yields in regions with extreme weather conditions, et al.
