Thats a dictionary containing 1 item ('groups') which is a list of dictionaries, each containing two items ('class' and 'sum').

var list = ee.List(ee.Dictionary(result).get('groups'))
var group0 = ee.Dictionary(list.get(0))
var sum = group0.get('sum')

But if you're going to do something with all of the groups, it might be better to convert the list of dictionaries into two lists of classes and sums:

var list = ee.List(result.get('groups'))
var classes = list.map(function(d) {
  return ee.Dictionary(d).get('class')
var sums = list.map(function(d) {
  return ee.Dictionary(d).get('sum')
  • this is work, just add the print in the script "print (sums.get(0))" Aug 12, 2021 at 8:11
