The use of artificial intelligence is now crucial for environmental and climate issues, including oceanography. In this context, SCAI, ISCD and the Institut de l'Océan of Sorbonne Université joined their forces to offer a transdisciplinary summer school for PhD and post-doctoral students. 20 students will be selected  according to their academic background, their research subject & their motivation to participate in this school.

The objective: to acquire knowledges and skills in AI applied to oceanography (marine biology - omics, imagery -, physics, modeling, etc.)

Registration is open here
