Start-up ClimateAi aims should help growers prepare for a more disruptive climate

Himanshu Gupta grew up in India, where he saw how the unpredictably late monsoon season was often damaging crops and affecting farmers’ lives. The frustration he witnessed eventually led him to co-found ClimateAi, a Bay Area-based startup that aims to help farms and other businesses prepare for a hotter, more disruptive climate using the power of artificial intelligence.

By harnessing machine learning models, the company says its customers can anticipate and prepare for climate risks to their supply chains and operations over periods ranging from weeks to seasons. That timeframe, Gupta said, is traditionally a modeling blind spot for climate forecasters without access to AI-powered tools.

ClimateAi created deep learning models, incorporating oceanic parameters like sea surface temperature and oceanic salinity, to better predict climate risks, even for regions with limited weather data.
