**NEW** USGS AI/ML Inventory

Please share the inventory link with anyone in USGS that is working on an AI related project.  The CDI AI/ML working group will be sharing this information with the 21st Century Science/EarthMap working group, as well as with the Regions and Mission Areas.  For the initial inventory of projects, see FY19 AI/ML Inventory Spreadsheet.


The purpose of the group is to discover and share AI/ML work being done at the USGS, offer learning opportunities, learn what needs exist across the bureau, and create connections between USGS employees.

Using the themes generate during the Nov CDI call here is a word cloud highlighting people's interests in AI/ML
