About the workshop

This virtual workshop is a continuation of the NOAA series of workshops on “Leveraging AI in Environmental Sciences.” The third event continues the successes of previous workshops and encourages participation by scientists, program managers, and leaders from the public, academic and private sectors who work in AI and environmental sciences. The theme for this year’s workshop is “Transforming Weather, Climate Services, and Blue Economy with Artificial Intelligence.” This year’s workshop is led by the NOAA Center for Artificial Intelligence (NCAI), a program in the formulation stage.

All time listed on this page is Mountain Time (UTC-6) by default. You can change to your local time zone on the right side of this page. Questions regarding the workshop can be addressed to ai.workshop@noaa.gov. View the participant handbook for how to navigate the workshop technology platforms.
