Forecasting: Using Machine Learning Techniques in Energy, Environment and Agriculture

Come out to the Refresh Annapolis Valley event at the Acadia Entrepreneurship Centre on January 10 at 7 PM to listen to our Director Danny Silver!

Dr. Daniel L. Silver will review a series of projects undertaken by the Acadia Institute for Data Analytics. These amazing projects can estimate crop yield from smart phone images, do solar energy forecasting, manage building energy, determine stream flow rate and aquifer recharge prediction, sales forecasting, and classifying objects in UAV agriculture field images.

Many of these problems utilize high resolution observed and forecasted weather, high definition and multi-spectral digital images, and 5 minute through 60 minute data flow rates. These projects use a variety of machine learning methods. Come learn about standard neural networks, random forests, more advanced deep and recurrent neural networks, as well as transfer learning.

Organized by Refresh Annapolis Valley in cooperation with Innovacorp & Acadia Entrepreneurship Centre.

Thanks to everyone who came out. If you couldn't make it, you can see the entire video (audio is good, video is mediocre) at
