September 28, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am
Keynote talk @ 2021 Innovate: U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council Tech Symposium.
Talk title: The AgAID Institute
Presenter: Ananth Kalyanaraman
Abstract: Western U.S. farmers and policymakers face variable profitability, crop loss and poor crop quality owing to increased labor costs and fewer skilled workers, weather and production uncertainties, and water scarcity. The AgAID Institute, led by researchers at Washington State University, is guided by a mantra of adopt–adapt–amplify: adoption as a first principle in AI design, adaptability to changing environments and scales, and amplification of human skills and machine efficiency. AgAID activities include: using AI applications as testbeds for developing innovative ag technologies and workflows; serving as a nexus for collaborative transdisciplinary learning; preparing the next generation workforce for careers; and facilitating technology adoption and transfer.
This will be a hybrid event, so attend in-person or from the comfort of your own home, office or field.
