Webinar Overview

Join our panel of expert presenters as they discuss the application of AI-powered coding environments to augment and extend HEC-RAS-based workflows, including:

  • Parallel Plan Execution
  • Plan/Unsteady File Editing
  • Geospatial Analysis of Gridded Data
  • Report-Quality Results Visualization
  • API Access to Public Climate Data


During this webinar, we will also explore the capabilities of ChatGPT’s code interpreter, demonstrating low-friction, python-based data manipulation and analysis which would otherwise be traditionally performed in Excel or specialized applications:

  • Historical Guage Data Analysis
  • Time Series Statistical Analysis
  • Calibration Metrics
  • Hydrological Calculations
  • HDF Data Extraction and Editing
  • NetCDF4 Data Visualization


Readily available python libraries will be applied in the serial optimization coastal boundary condition placement, demonstrating how accessible deep learning tools are in a standard python environment.


Prior knowledge of Python and Jupyter notebooks is useful, but not required as the intent of this presentation is to help professionals to start writing code and performing useful tasks with readily available AI tools.


Webinar Outline

Our expert presenters will demonstrate:

  • Applying ChatGPTs Code Interpreter to HEC-RAS inputs and outputs.
  • Creating specialised GPTs for repeatable autonomous workflows.
  • Taking the Leap: Running code in a local notebook.
  • Q&A

Webinar Outcomes

  • Attendees will be issued a Certificate of Participation.
