  • Governance issue for cluster: using Github issues to manage development is this suitable or do people need translation from github issues/json blobs into english for non-technical users.
  • TODO item potentially for COR: create and or use existing CC license ontology to reference urls to licenses properly and unambiguously.
  • Decision made to update the guidance documents to recommend appropriate ontology (e.g., CC licenses) and if nothing else exists use spec URL. License vocab https://spdx.org/licenses/ (text or URL)

Planning for new Agriculture and Climate Cluster focus area on automated agriculture with AI
The Agriculture and Climate (ACC) Cluster will host a planning session for a new focus area on automated agriculture and AI (""Agro-AI""). Some initial ideas on possible activities in this space were presented at the ACC October 2019 telecon, including those related to the “Data-to-Decisions” ESIP Lab project (https://www.esipfed.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Wee.pdf). Currently, there are many initiatives and funding opportunities for automated agriculture with AI. The National Science Foundation, e.g., recently announced a program aimed at significantly advancing research in AI (https://www.nsf.gov/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=299329&org=NSF&from=news), including, in its initial set of high-priority areas, “AI-Driven Innovation in Agriculture and the Food System.”
Among the topics for discussion in this planning session will be related proposal opportunities and sponsoring an ACC breakout session on agriculture and AI at the ESIP 2020 Summer Meeting. How to Prepare for this Session: TBD; there will be an intro presentation, prior to the group discussion. This presentation may be made available ahead of the meeting in the scheduled session page.
