Recent technological advances have resulted in small, high resolution sensors that can be used to rapidly collect phenotypic trait data at regular time intervals in field or greenhouse settings. Such platforms will continue evolving and become more widespread, likely exacerbating the phenotyping bottleneck by creating a strain on current data processing frameworks.

Machine learning (ML) provides a way for extracting useful information from large datasets, which would otherwise be difficult to extract. With the recent advancements in ML algorithms, many domain scientists have started to use neural networks (NN) to detect plants and to quantify disease across images of various modalities. This workshop will focus on object detection and semantic segmentation neural networks using RGB images. Google Collab will be used in the hands-on activity.
