AI2EAR Bridge Program
The mission of AI2EAR is to enable long-term global food security and safety by accelerating collaboration between all the necessary disciplinary thought leaders and provide a framework for the sharing of critical resources and information needed to drive innovation.
The International Collaboration to Accelerate Integration of Engineering, Plant Sciences, & Agricultural Research using Artificial Intelligence, AI2EAR, is excited to announce a bridge program available to students accepted to graduate school at North Carolina State University this upcoming fall 2022. Awardees will have the opportunity to stay on campus at NC State this July and spend time with a mentor as they get to know the school, gain research experience, and attend professional development workshops. Awardees will be provided funding towards this experience.
AI2EAR Research Objectives
Sensor Science, Engineering, and Integration- (use plant-microbiome data to profile crop, soil, and environmental properties across scale.
Data Mining, Machine Learning, Multi-scale Modeling, AI models (use novel analytical paradigms for processing heterogeneous and unstructured crop, soil, and environmental datasets to provide stakeholders with an agro-ecosystem decision support framework that captures complex interrelationships between crops and the evolving agricultural environment.)
Open-source Data and Network Cyberinfrastructures (use data and network cyberinfrastructure that support innovations in sensor science and intelligent data mining analytics and will form the foundation of an open-source information sharing platform for real-time querying, systematic organization, and dynamic abstraction of heterogeneous agro-ecological datasets.)
