Artificial Intelligence and the Circular Economy: AI as a Tool to Accelerate the Transition

This paper provides an initial exploration of the intersection of two emerging megatrends: artificial intelligence and circular economy. As well as identifying cross-sector circular economy applications for artificial intelligence, the paper also takes a closer look at the food and consumer electronics industries and how artificial intelligence is being used, or could be used in future, to enable and accelerate the transition in these sectors.
