National Geographic AI For Earth Innovation 2021

National Geographic calls application for AI For Earth Innovation 2021. Basically, the National Geographic Society and Microsofts AI for Earth program partners to support novel projects that create and deploy AI tools to improve the way we monitor, model, understand, and ultimately manage Earths natural resources for a more sustainable future.

The AI For Earth Innovation grants support projects that use cloud computing to create and deploy open-source models and algorithms that make key analytical processes more efficient in the field. This partnership focuses on supporting projects that will build tools such as applications, application programming interfaces (APIs), or packages to be shared. In addition to that, Microsoft will help the successful applicants make their models and tools available for use by other environmental researchers and innovators.


Extreme weather events, wildlife trafficking, rising sea levels, increased agricultural and urban development demands, higher global temperatures, and increased ocean acidity are among the threats to the natural systems and biodiversity we rely on. Basically, the proposed work should address one or more of the topics below and create generalizable, scalable tools that can be used by other environmental researchers and conservationists.

Biodiversity: Biodiversity around the world is rapidly declining. AI can help us understand and address challenges such as these:

Climate Change: Countries and communities around the world engage in climate resilience, adaptation, and mitigation efforts. AI can help in areas such as these:


Applicants may request $5,000 to $100,000. Moreover, the budgets of successful proposals will include reasonable, well-justified costs directly required to complete the project. In addition to financial support, successful applicants will receive free access to AI for Earth APIs, applications, tools, and tutorials, and support for their computational work on Microsoft Azure.


All models supported through this grant must be open source, and grant recipients must be willing to publicly share both the underlying data and their developed solutionsincluding, for example, applications, APIs, and Python/R packagesfor use by other environmental researchers. More specifically, grant recipients must do the following:
