AI Strategy for Earth system data
The KISTE project aims to exploit recent developments in artificial intelligence – especially deep learning methods – for sound environmental data analysis. The scientific goal is the implementation of current AI approaches for spatiotemporal variable pattern recognition and pattern analysis in environmental data in the subject areas clouds, snow/ice, water, air quality and vegetation within the framework of five dissertations. In addition, a technical platform will be created to make powerful AI applications on environmental data available in a portable way. An online AI learning platform will be established with Interfaces to this AI platform. This e-learning offer is aimed at the location-independent education of young scientists and other interested parties. It will use the concepts and methods developed in the five research fields as teaching material.
The grant is valid for the period from 01.11.2020 to 31.10.2023.
AI lighthouse for the environment, climate, nature and resources
KISTE is part of the initiative “AI light house for the environment, climate, nature and resources”. These are projects that use their digital know-how and creativity to overcome ecological challenges.
