CSDMS 2021: Changing Landscapes and Seascapes: Modeling for Discovery, Decision Making, and Communication

Training Datasets for Modeling with AI across the Deep-Ocean Seafloor

Chris Jenkins

AI/ML Initiative/CSDCS, UC, Boulder, United States

As agreed at earlier CSDMS forums, the major

impediment in using AI for modeling the deep-ocean seafloor is a lack of training data, the data which guides the AI - whichever set of algorithms is chosen. This clinic will expose participants to globally-extensive datasets which are available through CSDMS. It will debate the scientific questions of why certain data work well, are appropriate to the processes, and are properly scaled.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own AI challenges to the clinic.
