CAII Fall Seminar Series: "AI Applications in Agriculture and Genetics"

Event Type
Center for Artificial Intelligence Innovation
Sep 28, 2020   11:00 am  
Matt Hudson, College of Agricultural, Consumer, & Environmental Sciences

Matt Hudson, a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign College of Agricultural, Consumer, & Environmental Sciences, will give a talk Monday, September 28 at 11:00 a.m. via Zoom. The title of the talk is "AI Applications in Agriculture and Genetics."

Abstract: In the first part of today’s talk, Dr. Hudson will describe the Center for Digital Agriculture of which he is a co-Director, and the plans for the recently awarded AIFARMS AI Institute. The applications of AI in agriculture are numerous, including data science, machine vision, robotics and other rapidly advancing areas. In the second part of the seminar,  Dr. Hudson will describe his own research that applies computational methods to biological problems across a wide range of organisms. His research interests center on the use of high-performance computational techniques to pursue questions in genomic biology, and AI for the design of genome editing approaches. His research program focuses on identifying the genomic variants that control trait variation in plants, nonhuman animals and human populations, funded by grants from the NSF, DOE, and USDA as well as private companies, foundations, and commodity boards. Past and current major research collaborations include the Energy Biosciences Institute, CABBI and the Center for Digital Agriculture.
