Terrafuse AI

Terrafuse is building AI technology that accelerates physical models of climate and weather risk by orders of magnitude from hours on a supercomputer to seconds in the cloud. Our technology combines our academic expertise in climate science and machine learning, developed from our work at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and supported by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Defense, and Microsoft AI for Earth. Our vision is to develop a Queryable Earth in which cloud-native Earth observation and climate data are combined with AI to produce actionable insights into climate risk and energy resources.

Terrafuse is building AI technology that accelerates physical models of climate and weather risk by orders of magnitude from hours on a supercomputer to seconds in the cloud. Our technology combines our academic expertise in climate science and machine learning, developed from our work at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and supported by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Defense, and Microsoft AI for Earth. Our vision is to develop a Queryable Earth in which cloud-native Earth observation and climate data are combined with AI to produce actionable insights into climate risk and energy resources. Our starting points are wildfire and wind. Extreme wildfire conditions have increased by 50% in the last few decades as a result of climate change and insurance companies are now refusing to insure homes and businesses in California , making it impossible for nearly 1M homeowners and businesses to get coverage for their properties. By combining our deep...

Terrafuse AI, a venture-backed startup based at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and supported by funding from the National Science Foundation SBIR program, has an opportunity for an Entrepreneurial Postdoctoral Fellow in Machine Learning for Climate. We particularly encourage applicants who are members of under-represented groups in science and engineering.  Terrafuse is developing AI technology that accelerates physical models of climate and weather by orders of magnitude. Our technology leverages our academic backgrounds in climate science and machine learning, developed from work at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and supported by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Air Force, and Microsoft AI for Earth. We are applying deep learning approaches to model wildfire risk in California, for forecasting and optimization of wind energy, and for high-resolution downscaling of climate models. Our long-term vision is to develop a Queryable Earth in which cloud-native Earth...

Don't see an open role that fits your skills and interest? We still want to hear from you! As an early stage startup, our needs are constantly evolving and we want to have the smartest, hardest working people on our team. The company Terrafuse is building AI technology that accelerates climate physics models from hours on a supercomputer to seconds in the cloud, greatly improving our ability to protect against disastrous impacts of climate change and plan renewable energy infrastructure. Climate change is projected to displace hundreds of millions of people and cause trillions of dollars in damage by 2050. Protecting people and infrastructure against the damage is only possible with accurate and granular risk models, because broadly protecting all areas is too expensive. For example, increased frequency of wildfires is forcing insurers out of California - however, with our product that accurately quantifies wildfire risk property by property, it...
