Investment in cutting-edge science
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded funding for the AI Center For Research on Trustworthy AI in Weather, Climate, and Coastal Oceanography. This new Center, based at the University of Oklahoma, is part of NSF’s national investment to “accelerate research, expand America’s workforce, and transform society in the decades to come.”
The Center, nicknamed AI2ES, brings artificial intelligence (AI) research and application to environmental sciences (ES). A broad team of academic institutions, private industry, and federally funded research labs will advance cutting-edge science for the benefit of society, the workforce, and the environment.
With AI certificate programs aimed at workforce skills, the institute is providing the research and training necessary for the future workforce to deliver the advances needed to deal with forecasting and prediction challenges.
