Kx is thrilled that the Earlham Institute in England will be using Kx technology for a bioinformatics project that will help to promote a sustainable bioeconomy.

Ji Zhou, Phenomics Project Leader at Earlham, is planning to develop and embed the latest machine-learning algorithms, including deep learning techniques, in Kx’s platform. Earlham will use Kx to create predictive models for studying crop growth patterns and agricultural tactics. Their models will incorporate factors such as environmental stress and crop response.

Stay tuned for updates on their progress, and in the meantime, here is an article about the project from Scientific Computing World:
