Publication statistics for ‘deep learning’ between 2002 and 2017 (research by the Fraunhofer IGD by using Scopus). Biology (‚agricultural and biological sciences‘ in ‚other‘, right) only contributes about 1% of all these documents – thus DIG-IT!

 

 

Extract from the jury‘s vote:

„The proposal DIG-IT!  aims to tackle urgent ecological questions by the application of digital tools, in particular the evaluation of primary data, which currently poses a challenge. (…) The jury is convinced of the projects scientific excellency. In particular the idea to develop a digital toolkit is impressive. Appreciated is also the connection to previous and existing research cooperatives like WETSCAPES und RESPONSE [DFG graduate college ‚Biological RESPONSEs to Novel and Changing Environments‘] and to use their findings for the promotion of the young academics.“

 


 

The project "DIG-IT!"  is funded by the European Social Fund and the Ministry for Education, Science and Culture of the federal state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
