    Working Groups and Committees

    Working Group - CommitteeTasks
    Working group on machine learning in marine science (WGMLEARN)The working group on machine learning in marine science (WGMLEARN) is involved in identifying the current status and potential ways of incorporating machine learning methods in the marine sciences. The goal is to summarize relevant information, identify challenges and needs (methodology and data) and promote the adoption of relevant ML-techniques in the marine science domain.
