AI for Earth was recently announced as a program for organizations to use AI to help solve many of the world’s greatest environmental challenges. The program offers researchers access to the cloud and AI computing resources, technology trainings and lighthouse projects ($2 million commitment in the next fiscal year). The program is also a partnership between Esri and Microsoft and includes access to the Data Science Virtual Machines (will include ArcGIS Pro). See here for another recent announcement.
