Cloud computing and the future of agriculture

Sep 19, 2016, 8:30am - 6:30pm

In support of Ohio State's Discovery Themes, Amazon Web Services will present a day of demonstrations showing how cloud computing, big data and the Internet of Things are accelerating innovations in agriculture, increasing crop yield, and helping to conserve natural resources, fight hunger and create a more resilient food-supply chain. The event is Sept. 19 at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center on the Columbus campus. The demos go all day, from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., but breaks between sessions will make it easy to come and go. The event is free and breakfast and lunch are provided, but space is limited. Register at
