Speaker: Denis Willett (https://ncics.org/people/denis-willet-2/)

Abstract: In an era of global change, we are making rapid strides in our ability to understand global systems at scale.  Paired with this improved understanding is the imperative to manage these changes for the benefit of global societies and ecosystems.  Underpinning these abilities are technological advances in data engineering, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and distributed computing.  Here, we will dive into the connection between these advances and our collective ability to manage global systems from an applied perspective through focused case studies highlighting future capabilities.  The goal of this discussion will be to highlight how technology is driving insights in applied ecology at scale.
