SusTunTech actively contributes to this WGMLEARN in their activities, reports and meetings. This group had his last meeting this week (25-29 October 2021) to gather conclusions of their work and to define new steps such as defining the aims of a WGMLEARN2 group to extend their activities another three years:
The objectives WGMLEARN are to:
- review the current applications of machine learning in marine science as well as the new developments in machine learning that would be of potential interest
- identify key challenges
- inform data collection and storage to enable the use of machine learning on marine data archives
- identify trends and future needs, to promote the use of relevant machine learning technologies
One of the challenges identified is the need of a multidisciplinary team with not only computer and marine scientist, but also with technological companies. SusTunTech has been recognized as an example of a successful integration of a multidisciplinary partners as highlighted in a report under preparation. This report will be part of ICES advisory reports aiming at scientist and policy maker.
