Image-Based Goat Breed Identification and Localization Using Deep Learning. Fancy maths can identify goat breeds from photos. Ok, cool, now what?
AI Naturalists Might Hold the Key to Unlocking Biodiversity Data in Social Media Imagery. Fancy math can often identify common flowers on Flickr. Ok, cool, now what?
FoodMine: Exploring Food Contents in Scientific Literature. Fancy maths can trawl the literature to pick out the chemical components of different foods. Ok, cool, I guess, now what?
Cultural and linguistic diversities are underappreciated pillars of biodiversity. Well, yeah. But now what?
Global priority areas for ecosystem restoration. Fancy maths says restoring 15% of converted lands in identified priority areas could avoid 60% of expected extinctions while sequestering 30% of the total CO2 increase in the atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution. Cool, now what?
An unexpectedly large count of trees in the West African Sahara and Sahel. Wait, does that mean some of the above won’t be necessary? Cost and affordability of nutritious diets at retail prices: Evidence from 177 countries. Fancy maths shows that nutritious diets are almost 3 times as expensive as diets supplying basic energy needs, and costs increase with remoteness. Ok, cool, now what?
Phylogenetic inference enables reconstruction of a long-overlooked outbreak of almond leaf scorch disease (. The olive plague started on almonds. Ok, now what though? Xylella fastidiosa) in Europe
Genome-wide association study in accessions of the mini-core collection of mungbean (. Genotyping, phenotyping and fancy maths find that mungbean could grow in temperate conditions. Ok, cool, now what? Vigna radiata) from the World Vegetable Gene Bank (Taiwan)
Enhancing the searchability, breeding utility, and efficient management of germplasm accessions in the USDA−ARS rice collection. Genotyping and fancy maths can improve genebank management. Well, yeah, but now what? No, wait, we know exactly now what: digital genebanks! Ok, that was a bit of fun, but the important point is that research, no matter how cool, is only the beginning.
