UWinnipeg Research Team’s Work On Machine Learning Highlighted

Tue. Oct. 13, 2020

Researchers at The University of Winnipeg were recently highlighted among those from a range of well-known international institutions on the Globus website. Globus is a non-profit service for secure, reliable research data management.

Featured on the site are Dilbarjot and Michael Beck — members of the Physics and Applied Computer Science departments at the University of Winnipeg, who are part of a team generating labeled datasets to train Machine Learning models to recognize specific features in images captured from crops that indicate a need for specific mitigation techniques, such as targeted pest controls, irrigation changes, etc.

Dr. Christopher Henry, from the Department of Applied Computer Science adds that the research team is working closely with Compute Canada and is the first to use their new object store system.
