Climate-driven disease compromises seagrass health

By Blaine Friedlander for the Cornell Chronicle 

In an oceanic omen for climate change’s intensifying effects, Cornell-led research (including Carla P. Gomes, professor in the Cornell Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science) shows that seagrass – through large swaths of intertidal meadows in the Pacific Northwest – suffers from a lesion-filled wasting disease. The grasses’ once-vibrant plant root systems are deteriorating, too.

Carla P. Gomes, the Ronald and Antonia Nielsen Professor of Computing and Information Science, is the recipient of the 2021 Feigenbaum Prize, given by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). 

The prize is awarded biennially to recognize and encourage outstanding AI research advances made by using experimental methods of computer science. The “laboratories” for the experimental work are real-world domains, where the power of the research results are demonstrated.
