Guest seminar: Alexis Comar, PhD – Hiphen CEO & Founder

Sep 8, 2022, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Dr Alexis Comar | Hiphen CEO & Founder

High Throughput Phenotyping – Technologies, trials and innovation at HIPHEN

Time: Thursday 8th September, 12:30PM – 1:30PM ACST
Venue: Online

The APPF is catching up with Alexis Comar during his visit to Adelaide. While on the Waite Campus, Dr Comar will give an address (via webinar) on High Throughput Phenotyping – Technologies, trials and innovation at HIPHEN. All Waite Campus partners are invited to zoom-in.


The webinar will cover how image analysis and AI are being used in the agricultural space. Focus will be made on the following use cases:

  • For grapes quality evaluation in the Champagne region.
  • For product performance evaluation
  • For breeders
  • For the vertical farming industry.

Through those use cases, we will cover topics such as disease evaluation, water efficiency assessment, and 3D computation.

Finally, a short update on Hiphen’s phenotyping portfolio will also be made.

About the Speaker

Alexis Comar did his Ph.D. at INRAE at a pioneering time for field high throughput phenotyping. His research focused on the interaction between leaves and light and its consequences for remote sensing applications. With the mission of making these remote and proximal sensing tools accessible more broadly to crop researchers in academia, government, NGO and industry, Alexis co-founded HIPHEN in 2014 and has led its growth as CEO since then. Today HIPHEN connects researchers worldwide to plant phenotyping and crop image analysis tools and now engages the skills of more than 20 agronomists, engineers, and scientists in France and the USA. It counts among its clients Moet, Syngenta, CIMMYT, ICARDA and many other companies, researchers and NGO’s involved in crop research globally. Still involved in research projects, Alexis continues to keep Hiphen on the leading edge of the application at the production scale of image analytics in agriculture.  The goal is to help people develop the varieties, processes, and products that will secure the food supply and create more sustainable and profitable options for farmers and the agricultural ecosystem around the world.

About Hiphen

At Hiphen we have assembled a team of 20+ agronomists, image processing engineers, software engineers and data scientists who are laser focused on making high-throughput plant phenotyping accessible to the agricultural research community. We design plant assessment solutions that are actioned routinely by our clients, and we also develop custom-made image analytics applications that are tailor-made to tackle very specific agronomic challenges. We have committed our careers to data excellency and to uncover new phenotypic traits by innovating together with the scientific research community with whom we continuously create, test, and validate new methods to help solve the current agronomic challenges and those that are yet to come.
