NOAA to Solicit Public Insight on Four Draft Science and Technology Strategies

[2019.11.13, Wed 20:03] The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration wants the public to weigh in on four technology-focused strategies it's produced to steer future artificial intelligence, unmanned systems, 'omics, and cloud efforts. "These strategies are intended to dramatically expand our application of these four emerging science and technology focus areas by improving the efficiency, effectiveness and coordination of their development and usage across the agency," officials wrote in a notice of public comment set to be published in the Federal Register Thursday. NOAA has worked to advance solutions across all four areas in recent years and guidance from both Congress and President Trump's administration also influenced the draft strategies' development. The executive order on Maintaining American Leadership in Artificial Intelligence, Federal Cloud Computing Strategy, a research and development priorities letter from the Office of Science and Technology Policy, and the Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act, among others, were listed as avenues of inspiration. Once comments are collected and the strategies are completed, the agency aims to create strategic implementation plans that will detail the action items and relevant deadlines going forward. "In the meantime, these NOAA S&T focus areas are already improving performance in our economically impactful missions and setting the course to strengthen our renowned environmental science and technology leadership for the coming decades," the agency said. "The draft strategies will ensure robust agency-wide coordination and strong institutional support from NOAA senior leadership for these emerging science and technology focus areas to guide transformational advances in the quality and efficiency of NOAA's science, products, and services," officials wrote.
