Human-made climate change may already be affecting at least 85% of the world’s population, according to a new AI analysis. Scientists produced the estimate by using the BERT language model to extract environmental assessments from research papers. Their algorithm was first trained on more than 2,000 hand-coded documents. It was then applied to a trove of studies published between 1951 and 2018. In total, the algorithm identified more than 100,000 papers documenting the effects of climate change.
