AIDingArctic

The 2nd workshop on Artificial Intelligence & Data Science for the Arctic

The workshop is scheduled to take place during the last week of September 2021

There are extreme challenges unique to the Arctic, from human activities and impacts in remote Arctic locations to Arctic data acquisition, sharing, and quality. There is a strong need to direct AI applications towards solving Arctic challenges that are important for the world as well as to highlight the ‘black holes’ or knowledge gaps and raise awareness on what does not work, needs improvements, and what needs critical attention in Arctic and other freezing areas. 

We gather academia, industry, government, and engaged citizens who are willing to share their experiences and to learn across disciplines. 

Abstracts for oral presentation are invited on a wide variety of applied AI and data science topics:

  • AI for Autonomy in the Arctic: Autonomous Arctic ships, Application of AI and data science in Arctic remote sensing, Smart sensors in harsh environments, AI and data science methodologies applied to support operations in the Arctic
  • AI for Arctic science: Arctic data analytics, task automation, AI and data science methodologies applied to enable Arctic science (climate, biodiversity, geophysics), use of machine learning to support data mining and pattern recognition in Arctic settings, data-driven modelling, AR/VR technologies for human-AI collaborative discoveries in the Arctic
  • AI for Arctic industries: e.g., Arctic Tourism, Fisheries, Shipping, Power, Energy, Industry 
  • AI for Avalanche damage mapping, Arctic coastal erosion mapping
  • AI for Arctic health monitoring
  • Real-world Arctic applications of AI and Data Science 
Face Arctic challenges, join us!
