2020 September 8 - Advancing AI-ML for the USGS in the CHS environment

Abstract: The Cloud Hosting Solutions (CHS) program is now offering and actively supporting the utilization of various artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI-ML) services. Matt Kuckuk will describe the kinds of support that are or will be provided to CHS customers. Matt will describe his recommendations for how investigators can identify use cases that are most likely to benefit from application of AI-ML techniques, and how they can begin to determine what standard algorithms to evaluate. He’ll discuss, for example, how “scientific” use cases and “operational” use cases differ in terms of their requirements. Finally, he will describe how to engage with the CHS AI-ML team to get support for new proposed use cases and applications.

Matt Kuckuk recently joined the CHS team after decades leading AI, ML and data analytics practice teams of up to 200 data scientists and developers in large consulting companies. He has implemented a wide variety of AI-ML applications and research projects for public sector as well as commercial organizations. He is now focused on creating and sustaining the AI-ML capability within CHS to advance the USGS mission.
