“It was a very well organized meeting and I really enjoyed the technical content. The breadth of research presented in one day was amazing and there was a serious drive toward real-world applications. I enjoyed interacting with the students and learning about their work in vertical agriculture and sensor development. It was definitely a great opportunity to meet very interesting people and learn about new research fields.” – Levente Klein, T. J. Watson Research Center
