AG2PI Field day
August 18, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Talk: The AgAID Institute
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 the 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.
