Apply for a food systems education fellow to democratize AI.
The National Science Foundation-funded AI Institute for Intelligent Cyberinfrastructure with Computational Learning in the Environment (ICICLE) is now accepting applications for its 2024 Educational Fellows Program. Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early-career educators and researchers from all domains and disciplines actively enrolled in, or formally affiliated with, a US-based institution, are eligible to apply. Those from populations and institutions traditionally underrepresented in research computing, as well as those interested in developing skills and/or positing research questions using AI-enabled cyberinfrastructure and knowledge systems to support increased resiliency of food systems, are strongly encouraged to apply. For more information about or to apply to the ICICLE Educational Fellows Program, please visit: https://icicle.osu.edu/education-and-outreach/icicle-educational-fellows-program
An informational webinar will be held on February 14, 2024, at 3:30PM ET. To register for the webinar, please visit: https://iu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZAvceuvrDIrGdcNKlIYYlDIDZ_F2P90XsAF#/registration“
The UW Team on ICICLE is Alfonso Morales, CIAS faculty associate (Planning and Landscape Architecture), Michelle Miller, CIAS staff researcher, and Song Gao (Geography) working on Smart Foodsheds to develop an Integrated Knowledge and Learning Environment. This involves developing several methods to access data, make those data interoperable through ontologies, create knowledge graphs and models that are then linked to visualization dashboards. Our projects highlight AI’s use to improve market access for regional food and improve food access for rural and urban communities.
