Meeting Description:

 

In this webinar, Steve Buckleyand Derek Guenther of Ocean Insight will teach users about several recent advancements in spectral hardware and software, and the heightened power of spectral measurement systems when coupled with applied spectral knowledge. New spectrometer bench designs further improve optical performances such as resolution and peak symmetry to bring hard-to-see analytes out of the noise. In addition, the viewer will learn about imaging systems that take these optical measurements to a new level by providing analysis over broad areas for in-line food and materials inspection. Perhaps the most exciting part of this webinar will be the introduction and explanation around spectral machine learning technology that is working wonders with large and difficult data sets, and across many application spaces. The audience will learn the value achieved by joining traditional spectroscopy with modern A.I. analytics to provide spectral solutions where once impossible, and doing so at amazing speeds. The application stories using the latest spectroscopy technologies are to jog the viewers’ imagination on the successes of the novel tools.

What You Will Learn:

  • Applications of imaging systems 
  • Power of machine learning in spectroscopic solutions 
  • Value of spectrometer bench designs

Who Should Attend:

  • Graduate students  
  • Post-Docs
