Advancing Sustainable Agriculture
ISB’s Project Feed 1010 is building a global, crowd-sourced network of educators, students, researchers and farmers to optimize and scale-up sustainable agriculture practices and educate the future scientific workforce. To support this global network, we have partnered with Northeastern University to develop database, web and mobile infrastructures with functionalities for data tracking, monitoring, analytics and predictive modeling. More than 20 graduate-level computer science students enrolled in an interactive course have been engaging with ISB researchers to develop critical components of this infrastructure. At the end of the course, the apps will be distributed to our network of educators, students, and farmers, allowing them to connect with PF1010’s global sustainable agriculture hub.
