The Department of Earth System Science (ESS) within the School of Physical Sciences at The University of California, Irvine (UCI), is seeking candidates for two positions.

Self Organizing Maps for Earth Systems Science

Self Organizing Maps

A self-organizing map (SOM), is an unsupervised machine learning technique used to produce a low-dimensional representation of a higher dimensional data set. SOMs are a specific type of artificial neural network; they can be used for clustering, dimensionality reduction, feature extraction, and classification. NSF Unidata AI/ML developer Thomas Martin talks about why they can be important tools for understanding large Earth Systems Science (ESS) datasets.
