How to generate spatially correlated data?

Table des matières Presentation of the method for generating cross-correlated spatial dataTheory of the methodLet’s first work on the proportion of noise for .Let us then work on the correlation between and Some little extras Generally speaking, when we want to evaluate the robustness and/or generality of an algorithm, we need to test it on Read more about How to generate spatially correlated data?[…]

Working with high-resolution data in precision agriculture

Table des matières Autocorrelation / Cross-correlationNoiseNoise and autocorrelationReliabily and data qualityA few words of conclusion Precision Agriculture is a data-based discipline; data that is collected to measure, describe, quantify, understand, or analyze agrosystems. A wide variety of measurement systems have been developed to measure agronomic parameters of interest, from plant vegetation status to crop yield, Read more about Working with high-resolution data in precision agriculture[…]

Producing profitability maps from yield maps?

Table des matières Yield and Profitability MapsHow do we value these profitability maps?What is the impact on value chain relationships?What are the limits to the use of profitability maps? In spite of the emulation around precision agriculture and digital agriculture in France, it is clear that these tools and solutions are not yet widespread in Read more about Producing profitability maps from yield maps?[…]

Filtering – Cleaning Yield Maps

Table des matières Why filter yield maps ?Typology of yield errorsSome additional elements In the previous post, a fairly general picture of yield sensors and associated data was drawn. Here we return to a recurring question related to yield data: How can we ensure that yield data are reliable enough to be used properly? We will Read more about Filtering – Cleaning Yield Maps[…]

Neural network – Let’s try to demystify all this a little bit (3) – Application to images

Table des matières Convolutional Neural NetworksImage DatabasesPackages and libraries to useKaggle Contest The complex architecture that we have detailed in detail in the previous sections is a multi-layer perceptron (MLP). This is the classic architecture of the neural network. Nevertheless, depending on the type of data used to input neural models (images, voice signal, etc.), Read more about Neural network – Let’s try to demystify all this a little bit (3) – Application to images[…]

Fuzzy logic or the extension of classical logic

Table des matières Fuzzy inference systemsAn example in the agricultural worldFuzzificationDecision-making unitDefuzzificationAs a discussion and conclusion The concept of fuzzy logic was proposed in the 1960s by Lotfi Zadeh, an Iranian mathematician and computer scientist, to tackle the limits of good old classical logic. Which limits are we talking about? Let’s take a first very Read more about Fuzzy logic or the extension of classical logic[…]
