a presentation by Anna Pakuła, Warsaw University of Technology, at the 2021 edition of the Smart Farming Conference
Anna Pakuła received the MSc. Eng. degree at Warsaw University of Technology (Poland) in 2004 in Marketing and Management and in 2006 in Photonics Engineering. In 2011 she finished the postgraduate course on Intellectual Property Management (University of Warsaw, Poland) and in 2016 she received PhD at Warsaw University of Technology. The main aim of her doctoral dissertation was to apply novel illumination techniques in optical profilometry.
Her research interests include optical measurements, methods and instruments, integrated optics, experimental mechanics and material science, optical and numerical methods of image processing and MEMS/MOEMS characterization. Lately, she work in the field of optical measurement and characterization of biological samples.
What drives you?
I am an enthusiast of optical measurements and characterization methods with bit an add of machine learning to enhance.
Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
If you are the one interested in upgrading your life with the use of the light you should attend – I will show how machine learning increased the impact of optical sorting.
What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
Increasing the bandwidth of used light should give the opportunity to adjust to different cases more flexibly.
What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
Decrease of time required for, sorting, growing e.t.c. or extending the time of storage…
What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
Low efficiency of light sources in specific regions.
In light lies the future.
Warsaw University of Technology builds upon the traditions of Polish technical universities that used to function in Warsaw – the Polytechnic Institute founded in 1826 thanks to the efforts of Stanisław Staszic and the School of Hipolit Wawelberg and Stanisław Rotwand established in 1895.
Warsaw University of Technology started on its own in 1915 thanks to the efforts of the Association for Scientific Courses and the Citizens’ Committee of the City of Warsaw. Working uninterruptedly, the University has been producing generations of graduates and has had an increasing number of scientific and technical achievements.
It is not only the oldest but also the best technical university in Poland; in the ranking of Polish universities, it has taken first place in its category for fifteen years. At Warsaw University of Technology, over 160 student research groups, organisations and associations are active, and the educational offer includes many fields of study (also with English as a medium of instruction).
