An overview of presentations from the 25th Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI 2011) special track on Computational Sustainability and AI gives a sense of the breadth and directions of research in the field. It also points toward much that we might hope to see in an environmentally minded cognitive agent, with competencies in sensing and observation, knowledge-based reasoning, decision making, and actuation. AI will offer important, albeit specialized, cognitive tools for decision-makers. To speed their adoption, we must not only consider technical optimality but also work with social, behavioral and economic scientists to understand the social contexts.
