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, and 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.)
