TDA and Amazon Web Services collaborated in September to host AWS Agriculture Analysis in the Cloud Day at Ohio State. The event, timed to coincide with the Farm Science Review and held at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center, brought together more than 100 university and industry experts, students, and members of the community to discuss how data and the cloud are changing the landscape of agriculture. Representing TDA were Faculty in Residence Chris Stewart and Elliot Bendoly, who participated in a panel discussion with Ohio State’s Michael Bevis.
