Digital Agriculture: Unmanned Aerial Systems, Plant Sciences and Education (UASPSE)

All-Hands Meeting

Hosted by University of Nebraska-Lincoln

May 17-18, 2018

Stakeholders from academia (including early career researchers, post-docs, graduate students, and undergraduate students), industry, government, non-profits, and other organizations are invited to attend.

As part of the Midwest Big Data Innovation Hub, the UASPSE Digital Agriculture Spoke* is devoted to building partnerships and resources that will address emerging big data issues related to Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Plant Sciences, and Education, including direct data collection of plant features by UAS, biological feature extraction through image analysis, big data processing pipelines, and techniques for data management and sharing.

Stakeholders will engage in interactive discussions about the partnerships and resources that will be needed to address the challenges in collecting, managing, serving, mining, and analyzing rapidly growing and increasingly complex data and information collections to create actionable knowledge and guide decision-making in the domains of UAS and Plant Sciences.

Meeting participants from any discipline or organization are invited to display a poster to help initiate discussion about their specific interests. Posters should address themes relevant to big data in UAS and Plant Sciences, including education and workforce development.

Organizers include UND, KSU, ISU, UArk, USDA, PrecisionHawk, AeroFarms Inc., and PepsiCo.

*Digital Agriculture: Unmanned Aerial Systems, Plant Sciences and Education (UASPSE) is a Big Data Spoke funded by the National Science Foundation Award #1636865 in collaboration with the Midwest Digital Agriculture Community and the Midwest Big Data Hub.
