    Speaker: Dr. Vipin Kumar, University of Minnesota

    Talk Title: Big Data in Climate and Earth Sciences: Challenges and Opportunities for Machine Learning

    Series: USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series

    Abstract: A massive amount of data about Earth and its environment is continuously being generated by a large number of Earth observing satellites as well as physics-based earth system models running on large-scale computational platforms. These datasets offer huge potential for understanding how the Earth's climate and ecosystem have been changing and how they are being impacted by humans' actions. This talk will discuss various challenges involved in analyzing these massive datasets as well as opportunities they present for both advancing machine learning as well as the science of climate change in the context of monitoring the state of the tropical forests and surface water on a global scale.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium
