Abstract: Visual Perception of Machine for Driving Farming Productivity

Smart farming 4.0 studies new knowledge, technologies and devices for automation in agriculture and aquaculture, early detection of pest and plant disease, automatic species identification, plant phenomics, better water resource management, land environment monitoring, costal environment monitoring, marine life surveillance, etc. In this talk, he will introduce some of their work on automation in agriculture and aquaculture, faster grading and packing, species and cultivar identification, pest and disease recognition at ARC Industrial Transformation Research Hub for Driving Farming Productivity and Disease Prevention and Environmental Informatics@Griffith, including recognition without detection, large image database retrieval (speed vs accuracy), and new advancement of visual classification from species to cultivar.

How can young researchers get ARC grant funding

 

Session Host:         Professor Ian Petersen, the Australian National University
Session Panelists: Xinghuo Yu, Distinguished Professor, RMIT University
Professor Qin Li, Griffith University
Professor Yongsheng Gao, Griffith University

Plenary Session Abstract:

This discussion will involve a panel of senior researchers who have been involved in ARC funding decisions such as being members of the ARC College of Experts. The discussion will focus on how young researchers can achieve ARC funding for their research. In particular, the issues to be discussed include a discussion of the various ARC funding schemes and the advantages that each might have for young researchers. The panel will also discuss the strategic issues young researchers need to make when putting together their applications such as what sort of topic should they choose, who else should be on the application and what to ask for in the budget.
