Second USC Workshop on Aquatic Ecosystem Sustainability (WAES’20)

May 22, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Friday May 22, 9am-3pm

Virtual event: https://usc.zoom.us/j/94023720328


This workshop will bring together experts in water and AI, with California as a driving motivation.  The discussions will be driven by research and technology needs to advance the science of water, in particular on water quality as a fundamental challenge to water availability and sustainability.  The discussions will be focused on artificial intelligence (AI) and the possibilities it offers through innovations in efficient modeling, data integration, and remote sensing and radar imagery.  

While the first USC WAES workshop (http://water.isi.edu/waes.html) focused on information technology, this workshop will focus on AI can improve modeling through new research on knowledge representation and machine learning to automate many aspects of modeling, optimization to improve decision making, and understanding causality across different system variables.
