September 2022:

A NASA Pathways Internship opportunity was launched to support a undergraduate or graduate student to develop advanced machine learning models on the NASA computing cloud.  The application deadline is September 16, 2022.  Applicants can apply here:  https://www.usajobs.gov/job/675779600  More information on Pathways internships is available here:  https://www.nasa.gov/careers/pathways

The Center for HelioAnalytics played a key role in launching the Heliophysics "Transform to Open Science" (TOPS) effort.  TOPS will provide resources and lead community activities for the Year of Open Science 2023.  

The team faciliated multiple White Papers submitted to the National Academies of Science's Decadal Survey for Solar and Space Physics.  Paper topics included knowledge management, responsible/ethical AI, data environments, advanced computing, diversity and inclusivity, mentoring, as well as a wide range of scientific topics.  Additionally, the team provided a coordination resource for authors who were preparing white papers to be aware of the other papers in preparation.   

 

August 2022:

The second  AGU - NASA Ethics in AI/ML Workshop concluded, which will lead to a document establishing responsible/ethical AI standards for the American Geophysical Union research community.

Team members participated in the Triennial Earth-Sun Summit and gave presentations on advanced machine learning, physics-informed neural networks, and responsible ML.  

 

July 2022:

Completed a second, successful year of our MUREP-focused intern program.  This year we were able to support five undergraduate summer interns.  In addition to providing science-focused mentors, we also added DEI and Outreach advisors.

Several team members participated in the AGU - NASA Ethics in AI/ML Workshop 1 to help develop community standards around responsible use of advanced methods.

 

June 2022:

The Center for HelioAnalytics Time Series Analysis proposal was selected by the NASA@Work "Mentors for MUREP" initiative. This will support work with talented faculty at MUREP institutions. 

 

May 2022:

Ryan McGranaghan gives an invited talk during the Python in Heliophysics Coommunity (PyHC) Spring Meeting

 

April 2022:

Team members Daniel da Silva, Chris Bard, Barbara Thompson, John Dorelli, Brian Thomas, Alex Barrie, and Ryan McGranaghan present posters at the 2022 Machine Learning in Heliophysics (ML-Helio) conference. 

Ryan McGranaghan and Barbara Thompson give an invited Poster Presention The ‘Silent’ Technology We Need: The Earth and Space Science Knowledge Commons at NSF CHESS Workshop, April 12 - 14, 2022.

The CfHA has proposed to be a mentor team as part of the NASA@Work Mentors for MUREP campaign.  This activity is a collaboration between the NASA Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) and NASA Science Mission Directorate.
