Spatial and Texture Analysis of Root System Architecture with Earth Mover’s Distance (STARSEED)

Abstract: Purpose: Root system architectures are complex, multidimensional, and challenging to characterize effectively for agronomic and ecological discovery. Methods: We propose a new method, Spatial and Texture Analysis of Root System architecture with Earth mover’s Distance (STARSEED), for comparing root… Read More

DATA SCIENCE COMPETITION FOR CROSS-SITE DELINEATION AND CLASSIFICATION OF INDIVIDUAL TREES FROM AIRBORNE REMOTE SENSING DATA

Abstract: Delineating and classifying individual trees in remote sensing data is challenging. Many tree crown delineation methods have difficulty in closed-canopy forests and do not leverage multiple datasets. Methods to classify individual species are often accurate for common species, but… Read More

PREDICTIVE MODELS TO IDENTIFY HOLSTEIN COWS AT RISK OF METRITIS AND CLINICAL CURE AND REPRODUCTIVE/PRODUCTIVE FAILURE FOLLOWING ANTIMICROBIAL TREATMENT

Abstract: Precision dairy farming, specifically the design of management strategies according to the animal’s needs, may soon become the norm since automated technologies that generate large amounts of data for each individual are becoming more affordable. Our objectives were to… Read More

ADDRESSING ANNOTATION IMPRECISION FOR TREE CROWN DELINEATION USING THE RANDCROWNS INDEX

Abstract: Supervised methods for object delineation in remote sensing require labeled ground-truth data. Gathering sufficient high quality ground-truth data is difficult, especially when the targets are of irregular shape or difficult to distinguish from the background or neighboring objects. Tree… Read More

CLASSIFICATION WITH MULTI-IMPRECISE LABELS

Abstract: Imprecise labels or label uncertainty are common problems in many real supervised and semi-supervised learning problems. However, most of the state-of-the-art supervised learning methods in the literature rely on accurate labels. Accurate labels are often either expensive, time-consuming, or… Read More

NON-INVASIVE HEART RATE ESTIMATION FROM BALLISTOCARDIOGRAMS USING BIDIRECTIONAL LSTM REGRESSION

Abstract: Non-invasive heart rate estimation is of great importance in daily monitoring of cardiovascular diseases. In this paper, a bidirectional long short term memory (bi-LSTM) regression network is developed for non-invasive heart rate estimation from the ballistocardiograms (BCG) signals. The… Read More
