Episode notes

In this special episode, John chats with Rafael from Digital Gaia, who are focused on utilizing AI technology for the regenerative economy, specifically in agriculture. They are building large-scale land and soil models to help people understand the possible interventions for soil regeneration and creating healthier ecosystems. The discussion covers the issues with the black box AI model, the risks presented by AI, and how it can be reframed as an opportunity to accelerate the transition to a regenerative economy. Digital Gaia is currently fundraising on Gitcoin and is open to collaboration. The team consists of experienced professionals, including Rafael, who worked at Google for six years, and Ned Harvey, the former head of the Rocky Mountain Institute. They are dedicated to rethinking land management, data usage, and incentive structures for a regenerative planet.
