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:

Our society is dependent on GNSS services for navigation in everyday life, so it is critically important to know when signal disruptions might occur. Physical models have struggled to predict astronomic scintillation events. One method for making predictions is to use machine learning (ML) techniques. This article describes how kdb+ and embedPy were used in the ML application.
