"AI Carbon Inventory" is a digitalized version of the traditional carbon inventory with complicated steps and data collection. First, we analyze the environmental disclosure indicators in SASB, GRI, TCFD, and CDP, select them from 77 industry categories through the system and then generate the disclosure indicators automatically through AI. Sensors are installed on each machine to collect data, and through marginal calculations, forecasting and scheduling, companies can achieve tariff management through machine scheduling within the contract capacity. After the second-stage carbon inventory, the hotspots of carbon inventory are identified and analyzed on two axes: first, visual warning with red and green lights from the highest to the lowest carbon emissions, and second, smart carbon reduction suggestions from the difficulty of improvement. Lastly, visualization of the battle board was used to read the amount, reduction effectiveness, and cost.
President Lee has always emphasized that "we need to cultivate innovative talents to participate in the upgrading and transformation of social industries". We encourage students to use the resources on campus to enrich themselves, prepare for their careers, and to enhance their employability.
