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.

T6A. Make your data "AI-ready": A hands-on data assessment activity (Acoustics data) – Tyler Christensen, Dan Woodrich
T6B. Make your data "AI-ready": A hands-on data assessment activity (Imagery data) –  Stacie Robinson, Erin Moreland

Data wrangling can be one of the most time-consuming components at the outset of a new AI-project. Having data that is high-quality, well-documented, easily accessible, and annotated can streamline application in AI/ML models and make data more open and valuable to collaborators. In this tutorial we will familiarize participants with characteristics of AI-ready data using this AI-Readiness Checklist. We will evaluate datasets to identify information gaps in data documentation and challenges in data preparation. We will also ask participants to provide feedback on the checklist. Participants are encouraged to come with their own datasets (only metadata is necessary) or download metadata for publically available datasets such as NOAA's Climate Data Records.

Use this link to make a copy of the AI-readiness assessment worksheet. Once copied, you can rename the worksheet with your name or dataset name.
