Hybrid Hybrid Event

3 July 2024 @ 09:30 17:00

Wednesday 3 July, 09:30 – 17:00 (BST)
Jealott’s Hill
International Research Centre

Artificial Intelligence is one of the most exciting and transformative developments of modern times. This joint event run by our Data and Electronics & Computing Special Interest Groups will cover a wide range of questions relating to the two-way dialogue between insect science and emerging artificial intelligence technologies. These include, but are not limited to: 

  • How can insect science benefit from emerging technologies today and in the near future, and what are the main challenges to successful implementation?
  • How can we design robust AI systems for analysing and integrating noisy datasets which can effectively deal with inconsistencies and errors;  what are the specific challenges for insect datasets?
  • How can we efficiently implement autodidactic (i.e. self-) learning for field-deployable data acquisition and analysis systems?
  • How can we overcome the challenges posed by operating technology at the edge?
  • How can insect science inform the future development of AI systems?

Specific topics might include, for example:

  • The use of AI technology in digital taxonomy.
  • AI technology in insect ‘omics and molecular ecology.
  • Image processing and machine learning for fully automated data capture in the field;
  • The implications of using large language models such as Google Bard & ChatGPT for data mining.
  • Using AI technology in community science datasets such as iRecord/NBN, and many more.
