Sharing the Right Data Right: A Symbiosis with Machine Learning

Sharing the Right Data Right: A Symbiosis with Machine Learning
Sotirios A. Tsaftaris and Hanno Scharr,
In 2014 plant phenotyping research was not benefiting from the machine learning (ML) revolution because appropriate data were lacking. We report the success of the first open-access dataset suitable for ML in image-based plant phenotyping suitable for machine learning, fuelling a true interdisciplinary symbiosis, increased awareness, and steep performance improvements on key phenotyping tasks.
