Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Organizers invite expressions of interest (EOI) for a working group on artificial intelligence (AI) in the Arctic. The goal of the working group is to help streamline research efforts to some extent and create more opportunities for involvement.

Within this group, there will be topic-specific (e.g. AI for sea ice) and geographically-specific (e.g. AI in the Arctic) working groups formed. Organizers are still looking for people (from research, industry, government, etc.) to contribute.

If you are interested and have not done so already, fill out the online form as an Expression of Interest.

Organizers have set up a Slack channel where those interested can coordinate the community and set up events and other collaboration opportunities. The community will not be overly formal, and organizers emphasize that that all are welcome, including those from academia, industry, and government; those interested in the Arctic natural and social sciences; newcomers to AI and experts; researchers focused on sea ice, glaciers, marine ecology, remote sensing, climate variability, biogeochemical processes, etc.
