GUIRR Webinar - AI Institute for Next Generation Food Systems

The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable will host a webinar on the AI Institute for Next Generation Food Systems (AIFS), which aims to meet growing demands in the food supply by increasing efficiencies using AI and bioinformatics across food production and distribution systems. The Institute, launched in October 2020, brings together researchers from six institutions - UC Davis; UC Berkeley; Cornell University; the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign; UC Agriculture and Natural Resources; and the USDA's Agricultural Research Service. Through the integration of digital and biological technologies, AIFS research will pursue multidisciplinary science, industry engagement, and workforce development to address challenges across the U.S. food system.

Please join GUIRR for a webinar with Ilias Tagkopoulos, the director of AIFS and professor in the UC Davis Department of Computer Science and Genome Center, to discuss the collaborative mission of the new institute. 

There is no cost to this webinar, but registration is required. A confirmation email will be issued prior to the event containing the webinar URL.
