Machine learning (ML), and other large-data analysis techniques, have become essential tools for analyzing the ever-increasing sizes of scientific data returned from planetary missions. In addition, ML methods have demonstrated potential to assist in mission planning and operations. Planetary space physics (or the study of plasmas around planets) has often been a field defined by sparse data concerns and extreme environments. These aspects provide a uniquely challenging, and rewarding field to apply ML methods.
This seminar series aims to bring together researchers in planetary science, space physics, machine learning, and other domain applications of ML methods to advance applications of large-data methods. We welcome presentations from a broad array of fields including: Earth based and planetary science applications, educational efforts, and basic ML research.
