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.

Landscape of Components of DT for Earth System

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session gets to the practical level to talk about how DT4ESs and key components from major institutions and community collaboration could dovetail with each other, leverage each other, be compatible with each other, etc.

Session agenda:
11:30: Welcome / Housekeeping
11:35: Sue Haupt (NCAR): Using AI for Physics Parameterizations and Downscaling to High Resolution
11:50: Karthik Kashinath (NVIDIA): Key components of NVIDIA's Earth-2 Initiative: Progress and Challenges towards building Digital Twin Earths
12:05: Ann Bostrom (University of Washington, AI2ES): Risk communication design principles for responsible and trustworthy Digital Twin Earth systems
12:20: Tiago Quintino (ECMWF): Interoperability Destination Earth
12:35: Q&A
13:00: Session Close

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.
