AI2EAR Mini-Grant Application
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 mini-grant award available to undergraduate, graduate, and post doctoral students interested in traveling to and researching in a AI2EAR participating lab in Summer 2022. Awardees will have funding towards their travel and cost of living throughout their 1-3 month journey to AI2EAR affiliated labs.
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.)
