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

SAVE THE DATE(s):

Midwest Big Data Hub Digital Agriculture - All Hands Meeting/Hands-on UAS Workshop

Sponsored by the National Science Foundation and Hosted by University of Nebraska-Lincoln

September 20: Hands-on UAS Workshop, ENREC, Mead, NE

September 21: Midwest Big Data Hub Digital Agriculture - All Hands Meeting, UNL East Campus

The meeting, established by the Midwest Big Data Hub Digital Agriculture Community, a growing network devoted to building partnerships and resources that will address emerging issues in precision agriculture, ecosystem management and services, biosciences, socio-economic impacts, and data-related issues in the agricultural ecosystem, will focus on the methodologies and technologies that enable Digital Agriculture, the associated data challenges, and the resulting insights into complex agricultural and agroecological systems.

Several ongoing projects among biologists, engineers, computer scientists, and allies encompass UAS systems, plant sciences, and the future of education in agriculture. These projects emphasize how we collect and organize data, how we process it, and how we use it to develop statistical and conceptual frameworks to understand complexity in agricultural systems, from molecular to ecological scales.

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.
