Poster Title: Intelligent Systems for Geosciences: Ongoing Work and Future Research Opportunities
Presenters: Suzanne Pierce, Yolanda Gil, Shanan Peters, Sai Ravela, Basil Tikoff
EarthCube Affiliations: IS-GEO workshop (CISE / GEO supported)
This poster will present a report on the workshop on “Intelligent Systems Research to Support Geosciences and the EarthCube Mission”, which was held in March 2015 at the National Science Foundation.
The goal of the workshop was to formulate a research agenda for intelligent systems that will result in fundamental new capabilities for understanding the Earth system. In geosciences, the workshop covered requirements from Earth, ocean, polar, and atmospheric and spatial sciences. In intelligent systems, the workshop included participation from fields such as information integration, machine learning, knowledge representation, semantics and metadata, geospatial computing, robotics, visualization, and augmented reality. The workshop builds on the momentum of the NSF EarthCube initiative for geosciences and was informed by ongoing cyberinfrastructure efforts. The workshop resulted in a number of follow on events and activities.
A final report summarizing the workshop discussions will be available in July from the workshop web site: http://www.is-geo.org.
