Ketil Malde (IMR, Norway) will speak at the launch of the European Marine Board's Future Science Brief on Big Data in Marine Science.
As one of the co-authors of the Future Science Brief, Malde -who is also co-chair of ICES Working Group on Machine Learning (WGMLEARN) - will have a short talk on big data in fisheries and aquaculture.
WGMLEARN was recently established to survey the field of machine learning and its current applications as well as potential future roles in marine science and management. Several of its members (including both chairs) are also contributors to the European Marine Board, which has established a working group to explore how new technologies bring "big data" to the marine sciences. An important part of this is using modern machine learning methods and artificial intelligence to automatically analyze the large data streams.
The webinar begins at 13:00 CET. Listen to Malde speak about machine learning and the data driven future of marine science at 14:30.
There will be a question and answer session at the end of the talks, where webinar participants are invited to interact with the speakers.
Machine learning will be the focus on the next themed set in ICES Journal of Marine Science. Malde and co-authors have contributed Machine intelligence and the data-driven future of marine science.
The themed set Applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence in marine science will be free to all once published.
Emerging techniques and technologies is one of ICES science priorities that support our Strategic Plan. Discover our seven interrelated scientific priorities and how our network will address them in our Science Plan: “Marine ecosystem and sustainability science for the 2020s and beyond”.
