SPURRING INNOVATION IN GEOSPATIAL CONTRIBUTIONS TO AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT

This two-and-a-half day meeting provides a venue and showcase for the CGIAR-CSI and partners not only to share recent progress in geospatial technologies, methods, tools and learning, but also for this community to articulate a common vision of and commitment to its greater role in expanding the quantity and quality of public-good geospatial research products and services.

In this session, three important issues will be discussed in a panel-discussion format. All selected issues will have relevance to both the CGIAR and the broader geospatial community. Discussion leaders will provide background and invite discussants with knowledge and experience to challenge the community.

1. UAV Technologies and Applications (Kai)
Sharing examples, experience and most promising opportunities - as well as growing concerns and regulatory challenges.

2. Crowdsourcing Spatially-Explicit Data (Rhiannan)
Beyond OpenStreetMap (which we hear is at a crossroads), what's new, what's working (or not), and what inspiring ways crowdsourcing enables to collect quality geospatial data?

3. Machine-learning/Artificial Intelligence (Robin)
Use of AI in geospatial analyses is not necessarily new, but it's coming back with huge momentum. We will hear what’s already possible, followed by some group discussion around the current/potential use of AI applications in agricultural development area and how the geospatial community can support realizing its great potential.
