4th NOAA Workshop on Leveraging AI in Environmental Sciences has ended
The interactive workshop will be a virtual event to build collaboration and initiate the active development of AI-powered applications and community standards.

We invite developers, data scientists, domain experts, social scientists, and downstream users to form small teams around different use cases that are relevant to three themes relevant to NOAA Mission Areas: Fire Weather and Impacts, AI for Ocean Conservation, and Interoperable Digital Twin Earth.

All information about workshop logistics can be found in the handbook for participants.

If you encounter issues registering for the workshop, please contact ai.workshop@noaa.gov.

During this session, we invite participants to join the breakout rooms that are focusing on different topics to identify key challenges and needs to accelerate the adoption of AI for ocean sciences and applications.

Session agenda:

13:30 - 13:35: Welcome and logistics
13:35 - 14:05: Breakout room discussion
14:05 - 14:20: Main room sharing and report out
14:20 - 14:50: Breakout room discussion
14:50 - 15:00: Look ahead and wrap up

Breakout rooms are separated by topics:
1. Passive Acoustics & Telemetry (Facilitator: Bryan Costa)
2. Underwater Imagery (Facilitator: Hanu Singh)
3. Ocean Data & Physical Modeling (Facilitator: Megan Cromwell)
4. Airborne/Space Remote Sensing (Facilitator: Brendan Turley)
5. Environmental, Species & Stock Assessment Modeling (Facilitator: Ben Richards)

Participants can self select which topic room to join.

Times above are in Mountain Daylight Time (UTC - 6). Lightning talks are roughly 10-12 minutes each followed by a Q&A with the panel. We will use Slido during the Q&A. We'll use Slack to build community throughout the workshop.
