Meeting summaries and links in reverse chronological order.

2019 September 10 - An Application of Google’s Tensorflow for a Cannabis Production Inventory in Northern California

2019 August 13 - Continuous streamflow and nearshore wave monitoring from time-lapse cameras using deep neural networks.

  • Daniel Buscombe (Northern Arizona University) described a proof-of-concept study into designing and implementing a single deep learning framework that can be used for both stream gaging and wave gauging from appropriate time-series of imagery.

2019 May 14 - XGBoost in Continuous Change Detection and Classification (CCDC); Deep learning to quantify benthic habitat

  • Announcements (Pete Doucette)
    • Pete and other members of an AI/ML focus group presented to the USGS Executive Leadership Team at the end of March. Associate Directors are enthusiastic about incorporating AI/ML into their mission area research.
    • Don't forget the CDI workshop is happening June 4-7, 2019 in Boulder Colorado, tomorrow, May 15 is the last day for registration. Virtual participation links will be posted on the Workshop Page by the week before the workshop.
    • The AI/ML group leads are still interested in collecting an inventory of your AI/ML projects to share with interested USGS leadership. You can fill out the form here.
