Iranian Scientist Wins UNESCO AwardIranian Scientist Wins UNESCO Award

The International Coordinating Council of the Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Program of UNESCO has named Iranian Amirhosein Mosavi as one of the recipients of the 2017 Young Scientists Awards.

The MAB Program has been granting awards of up to $5,000 each since 1989 to encourage young researchers to undertake work on ecosystems, natural resources and biodiversity, Mehr News Agency reported.

It is presented to 4-7 young scientists every year, and this year seven young scientists are receiving the 2017 UNESCO MAB Young Scientists Awards.

Mosavi who resides in Hungary, is receiving the award for research on sustainability in the field of ‘monitoring and assessing sustainability in biosphere reserves utilizing sustainable business models.’

In addition to the UNESCO award, Mosavi this year also received the Future Talent Award of TU-Darmstadt, Go Styria Award from University of Graz, and a Research Fellowship Award from Bauhaus-Universit?t Weimar, Germany, for his research work where he reasoned that humanity requires accurate prediction-decision tools to reduce climate change.

An expert in both data science and decision science, Mosavi coined the term ‘predictive-decision model’ which he believes has extensive potential "for transforming latest discoveries into a major innovation in decision science and prediction."

He says he believes in the potential of artificial intelligence technologies of big data, machine learning, the Internet of Things (IoT), and deep learning to discover the greener ways of living.
