Machine Learning applied to agricultural Production

Programa de Pós-Graduação Stricto Sensu em Engenharia de Produção


The course work will be in English and will teach the students to solve problems in large database using machine-learning systems. Machine-learning paradigms for selecting input variables. Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and applications. Applications in agricultural production.


Newly published paper will be used to guide the problem solving techniques. Please see some examples below:
