Big AI conference hosts first-ever agricultural challenge
IntelinAir to help organize event to inspire the top AI talent to help growers maximize their yields
We’re excited about CVPR 2020, and you should be too.
The Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition is the premier artificial intelligence and machine learning event, taking place in Seattle from June 14 to 19. Computer vision represents the cutting edge of AI-inspired innovation. It’s the core technology behind everything from self-driving cars to robot vacuum cleaners that don’t constantly bump into the nearest wall. And, of course, it’s critical to smart agriculture.
The event’s organizers have just updated their website with the latest information, including a finalized list of all the amazing workshops planned throughout the week. Give it a look at cvpr2020.thecvf.com
2020 marks the first year in which agriculture has taken the spotlight at CVPR, and IntelinAir has the honor of helping organize the big event entitled: “The 1st International Workshop and Prize Challenge on Agriculture-Vision: Challenges & Opportunities for Computer Vision in Agriculture.”
The AgriVision Prize Challenge is about inspiring AI professionals from across industries to consider getting involved in promoting food security through greater efficiency — something that’s great for farmers and even better for the environment. Challenge participants will compete for prizes awarded for the cleverest and most efficient solution to the problem of automated image analysis in agriculture.
Teams taking part in the challenge will download the first-of-its-kind database of high-resolution, professionally annotated farmland imagery. Their mission is to come up with a scalable algorithm that can successfully add the same kind of high-quality annotations to raw images. Getting this right is a game-changer for agriculture, and we can’t wait to see what the best minds in the field will come up with.
The papers will be peer-reviewed by representatives from multiple research communities, and you’ll see presentations and panels featuring some of the biggest names in the industry. If you’d like to join in, the challenge is officially open to the public, and you have until March 10 to submit a report or workshop paper.
Or, if you just want to learn more about how computer vision will help feed the world, stop by the event in June. It will be worth it. Additional details on the workshop are available here.
We hope to see you there.
