Microsoft announced Monday that it would invest $50 million in a program that provides cloud-computing services and other resources to organizations working on climate change and environmental technology.
The Redmond company’s AI for Earth program launched in July with $2 million, awarding grants to universities, companies and nongovernmental organizations that gave them free use of Microsoft’s artificial-intelligence technology, including Azure cloud services and mapping tools.
Organizations that focus on agriculture, water, biodiversity and climate change are eligible for the grants, which aim to accelerate sustainability research.
