  • Abstract:

    Geospatial artificial intelligence (geoAI) is an emerging scientific discipline that combines innovations in spatial science, artificial intelligence methods in machine learning and high-performance computing to extract knowledge from spatial big data. In this talk, I will discuss potential applications for environmental epidemiology, including the ability to incorporate large amounts of big spatial and temporal data in a variety of formats; computational efficiency; flexibility in algorithms and workflows to accommodate relevant characteristics of spatial (environmental) processes including spatial nonstationary; and scalability to model other environmental exposures across different geographic areas.
