CSCI 8523: AI for Earth: Monitoring Changes in the Environment via Deep Learning

3 CreditsOnline Available

Advances in machine learning in conjunction with massive amounts of data from Earth observing satellites offer huge potential for improving our understanding of how the Earth's environment and ecosystems have been changing and how they are being impacted by humans actions and changing climate. Deep learning approaches, that have had phenomenal success in the domain of computer vision and language/speech translation, hold promise in dealing with environmental problems. However, due to challenges that are unique to environmental applications, off-the-shelf deep learning techniques developed for related applications such as computer vision often have limited utility. This class will introduce to the students the promise and challenges in using deep learning techniques to analyze complex, multi-scale, spatio-temporal data for monitoring changes in the Earth and its environment on a global scale. Prerequisites: CSci 5523, CSci 5521, or equivalent
