Dear AgBioData community members,


The next AG2PI Field Day is on Wednesday, February 16 from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM (Central Time, UTC-6). This event will feature the directors of the 2020 Artificial Intelligence Research Institutes, Dr. Vikram Adve and Ilias Tagkopoulos, funded by USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). These AI institutes are part of a network of AI institutes established by USDA NIFA and the National Science Foundation to pursue transformational advances in a range of economic sectors, science and engineering fields. Dr. Adve will describe the work of AIFARMS to address major challenges across the agriculture sector, including efficiency and welfare in animal agriculture, environmental resilience in crops and soil health. Dr. Tagkopoulos will discuss the AIFS goal of accelerating critical solutions to the entire food system: from farm to consumer.


This discussion will hit themes that are relevant to engineering as well as animal and plant sciences, so we hope you join us for an engaging conversation!


We invite you to register for this Zoom event at, where you will also find additional information. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with information about joining the meeting. If you are unable to attend the live session, then you will be able to find a recording at, at a later date. Please note: you do not need to register to view the recording; it is readily available on the AG2PI website soon after the close of the event (generally within 24 hours).


Feel free to share this message and attached flyer with colleagues at your institution.


Kind regards,
