How does a changing world challenge geosciences? What is the impact of escalating computational power, economic, ecological and societal changes accompanied by data explosion – growing varieties, large in volume and continuously accelerated? Which influence have big data and artificial intelligence (AI) on geoscience? Which opportunities do they offer to geoscientists?

The conference will highlight these issues by giving a platform for outstanding experts in the field of big data and machine learning. We highly appreciate the contributions from academia, governmental organizations and industry.

February 20 will address big data and AI applications in a global perspective with keynotes from selected issues. Invited talks introduce the current state and describe future tracks of machine learning (ML) technologies for geospatial applications. The experts join for a moderated plenary discussion on “How AI is changing the game”.

February 21 will focus on specific applications of ML in geosciences with invited talks on mineral and petroleum exploration, groundwater and soil science, Earth data mining and geohazard assessment. The experts join for a moderated plenary discussion on “Challenges and opportunities in geosciences”.
