Pawsey Fridays are opportunities to get to know users and Pawsey experts.

The afternoon will give you the opportunity to network and get to know both staff and users in a relaxed and informal setting, while finding out more about researchers’ experiences with Pawsey systems and their outcomes.

This Pawsey Friday our special guest is Dr Selam Ahderom from Edith Cowan University.

Dr Selam Ahderom will be presenting on his project on Precision Agriculture and Throughput Computing on GPU’s.
Dr Selam’s fascinating project involves a weed detection system with an inbuilt camera passing over crops and taking thousands of photos. The images of plant species are compared to stored data on the system to identify the presence of weeds in a particular area. Dr Selam’s goal is to install the weed detecting system onto farm machinery that blanket-spray crops with herbicide. The technology will result in the reduction of herbicide use in crops significantly. Dr Selam and his team have been using the world-class facilities at Pawsey Supercomputing to store, share and process the vast amounts of data needed for the project.

It will be followed by a brief presentation from Pawsey staff on Pawsey system updates.

A sundowner session will also take place where a selection of drinks and snacks will be available.

Please RSVP for catering purposes by Tuesday 28 March.
