Three junior data scientists from Tanzania, India, and U.S. will present their agricultural data science work, highlighting their innovative approaches (data they analyze, tools they use, and analysis objectives), inspirational stories (challenges they face, how they overcome them, and what motivates them), and inclusion aspects (how they ensure their data science work contribute to the mission of their organizations/programs).
