Training and resources

NCAI intends to build a clearinghouse of resources for NOAA that leverages standard development environments including Google Colab offsite link, Binder offsite link, and GitHub offsite linkOur goal is to provide a library to search, discover, and tailor accessible knowledge. From tutorials to best practices, we aspire to offer materials, training, and ideas.

Resource Gap Assessment

NOAA training action priority lifecycle highlighted by workforce role and relationship to AI.

As part of the NOAA Artificial Intelligence strategy, NCAI conducted a pilot training resource gap assessment in 2021 to gather training deficiencies, needs, and priorities across NOAA.

Survey respondents agreed that NOAA lacks training to incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) to the overall NOAA mission, which prohibits the workforce to become AI literate and proficient. At all levels of NOAA and with different roles in the AI development cycle (i.e., practitioner, user, manager), respondents requested NOAA-specific training using NOAA data and computing resources to remove common barriers to the “Research to Operations, Applications, and Services” pipeline.
