Online Symposium “Artificial intelligence in plant science and breeding” and matchmaking for the Plant-RX initiative on plant resilience
Through this symposium we want to provide participants with a view of the state-of-the-art of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in plant science and breeding, and to inform them about new developments, pitfalls and limitations, and opportunities.
The symposium will be followed by a matchmaking meeting for the Plant-RX initiative, see below the program for more details (please note that the matchmaking meeting is for companies and PIs only).

|15.25 h||Closing of meeting|
|15.30 h||Introduction of Plant-RX and matchmaking sessions|
|15.45 h||Start of breakout sessions|

From 15.30-17.00 h with several breakout sessions in Teams.
In the matchmaking sessions we invite both principal investigators and representatives of companies that have potential interest to participate in the Plant-RX consortium. Each session is focused on a moderated group discussion on resilience and trade off challenges in specific crop groups and will be hosted and moderated by a trio of a plant scientist, a data/ai scientist and a private sector representative.
3 breakout sessions are predefined:
- ‘Vegetables crops’
- ‘Potato and other arable crops’
- ‘Flowers and Ornamentals’
Depending on group sizes and participants additional groups may be added later.
We hope to meet you on Wednesday February 24, please register via this link. After registration you will receive a confirmation of participation. The link to attend the online event (via Microsoft Teams) will be send to you shortly before the symposium.
This event is hosted by Future Food Utrecht and co-organized by Plantum, University of Amsterdam, Top Sector Tuinbouw & Uitgangsmaterialen, Wageningen University and Research.
