September 17th, 2019 at 6:00pm EST


Principal Engineer of Microsoft’s “AI for Earth” group, Jennifer Marsman is coming to MSU to talk about AI for Earth. Here is an abstract:

The AI for Earth program applies machine learning and data science to hard challenges in agriculture, water, climate, and biodiversity. In this talk, we will discuss how the AI for Earth team, Microsoft Research, and AI for Earth grant recipients are using machine learning to enable precision agriculture, to predict outbreaks of disease, to detect poachers in real time, and to classify animals for conservation. Finally, we will briefly provide details on the AI for Earth grant program to obtain resources for everyone to work on these challenges.
