AI for Nature: From Science to Impact (NSF BIO/CISE Distinguished Lecture)

Thu, 6/6/2024 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Computation has fundamentally changed the way we study nature. New data collection technology, such as GPS, high-definition cameras, UAVs, genotyping, and crowdsourcing, are generating data about wild populations that are orders of magnitude richer than any previously collected. AI can turn these data into high resolution information source about living organisms, enabling scientific inquiry, conservation, and policy decisions.

Please join the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Directorates for Biological Sciences (BIO) and Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) for a Distinguished Lecture from Tanya Berger-Wolf, PhD, Professor of Computer Science Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology at the Ohio State University.

The talk will introduce a new field of science, imageomics, and present a vision and examples of AI as a trustworthy partner both in science and biodiversity conservation, discussing opportunities and challenges.

The lecture will be on Jun 6, 2024 from 11:00 AM-12:00 PM ET. Please register here. (Please note that although the registration page notes the webinar will open at 10:30am ET, the lecture will begin at 11am ET).
