GRSS Webinar: GRSS Earth Science Informatics: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Data Systems
NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems (ESDS) program that manages all of NASA’s Earth science data is facing new sets of challenges in data management, processing, and analysis due to the anticipated growth of Earth science data. To address these unprecedented challenges, ESDS is starting to leverage advanced data-driven technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) in all facets of the science data lifecycle management. This talk will discuss how ESDS is using these technologies to extract knowledge, improve operations, enhance data discovery, and support applications.
Dr. Manil Maskey received the Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Alabama in Huntsville, Huntsville, AL, USA, in 2019. He is a Research Scientist with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville. He also leads the Advanced Concepts team, within the Inter Agency Implementation and Advanced Concepts. His research interests include computer vision, visualization, knowledge discovery, cloud computing, and data analytics. Dr. Maskey currently chairs the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society and Earth Science Informatics Technical Committee, and leads the machine learning activities for the NASA Earth Science Data Systems program.
