Shichao Jin, a PhD candidate of Digital Ecosystem Group, was selected and invited as one of the 10 excellent student representatives of University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS) to attend the 2019 International Student Research Forum. The Forum was hosted by South Denmark University on June 16th to June 20th. Students from China, United States, Canada, Australia, and Denmark were gathered to share their recent research advances.
At the Forum, Shichao Jin made an academic report entitled “A Deep Learning Pipeline for High-Throughput Maize Phenotyping from Lidar Data”. He elaborated the development and challenges of crop phenotypic research, and introduced the opportunities of Lidar and deep learning technologies in crop phenotypic research. The report combined new technologies with traditional phenotypic research, sparking a strong interest and heated questioning from interdisciplinary research. Shichao Jin answered the questions one by one. In addition, Shichao Jin, as the student leader of the UCAS Student Delegation, gave a summary at the closing ceremony, which fully demonstrates the excellent qualities of the students from the Digital Ecosystem Group.
