    Event Description:

    The Food Animal Initiative, a collaboration between the NC State
    College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the NC State College
    of Veterinary Medicine, is hosting the first international symposium
    on Precision Systems and Data Analysis in Animal Agriculture.

    This symposium is responding to an unmet, and growing, research
    and application need for automation and big data analysis in managing
    animal health, welfare and production.

    It will be a unique, collaborative nexus for professionals from multiple
    disciplines (animal science, engineering, mathematics and statistics,
    and biology) to share ideas and foster open dialogue about the
    advancements in, and issues facing, the use of sensors in animal agriculture.

    Sensors and big data mining are two important tools for achieving
    the goals of “Precision Livestock Farming," making them important
    areas of discussion. The venue will be structured to facilitate interaction
    and discussions between producers and allied industries.
