Machine learning project at our institute contributes analysis method to precision agriculture
Published on:11 June 2019

Research published in the Journal of Animal Science has shown analysis method can accurately use phenotype and gene data to predict the age at which pigs will be ready for slaughter. A recent study by Ahmad Alsahaf, George Azzopardi, Bart Ducro, Egiel Hanenberg, Roel F Veerkamp and Nicolai Petkov examining the accuracy of phenotypic and genetic data in predicting slaughter age was prompted by the fact that correctly forecasting the growth of pigs can help determine things like feed costs and pen space requirements. Growth-rate predictions could also be used in other ways – for example, to identify which growth-rate factors might be more important than others.

Bernoulli's role in CogniGron praised by the University Newspaper!
Published on:01 May 2019

A computer that doesn’t use bits or bytes would be extremely fast and save energy. The same applies to your brain. Many consider this the future of computing and Cognigron, the new RUG research centre, are trying to make this a reality.

Artificial intelligence selects best candidate
Published on:30 January 2018

As well as being Senior Machine Learning Engineer, Jean-Paul van Oosten is also a PhD student. His work revolves around highly diverse ‘mountains of data’, in which smart systems recognize patterns and make connections. He does this using Machine Learning (ML). ML is the term used for the self-learning capacity of intelligent computers, which allows data to be enriched. One of the applications discovered by Van Oosten and his colleagues is a method for selecting the best candidates for a job from hundreds of curricula vitae and letters of application.
