What are your domain(s) of expertise?
Automated Decision Taken (ADT) in agriculture operations, study of ontology and semantics for agriculture, standards information exchange on the agriculture chain, automation and knowledge interoperability for agriculture and natural environments, information technology for data exchange and decision support systems.
What is your relationship with agricultural information management standards, tools and services?
My research is on the study of knowledge exchange between information systems that manage agriculture operations on the sugar cane production chain on Brazil. The study is looking for ways to describe specific knowledge associated to the agriculture operations using the sugar cane operations ontology. Once we could share not only pure data, but data and related knowledge it would be possible that automatic decisions could be taken by computer systems with less or no human intervention.
