When a musician’s new song hits a political nerve, he finds himself in the crosshairs of Spanish nationalists’ ire. In a stolen car found on a Périgord back road, police discover a distinctive bullet for a state-of-the-art sniper’s rifle, and they fear the songwriter might be the intended target. The French and Spanish governments agree to mount a joint operation to stop the assailants, and Bruno is the local man on the spot who mobilizes his resources to track them down.

Featured Scientist: Vasit Sagan, PhD, Associate Professor of GIScience, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Saint Louis University; Acting Director, Taylor Geospatial Institute

Dr. Vasit Sagan, Associate Professor of GIScience at Saint Louis University and Acting Director of the Taylor Geospatial Institute presents how remote sensing and AI are being used to develop better crops, teach plants to adapt to a changing climate, and ultimately improve global food security. Vasit demonstrates the capabilities of modern technologies and novel machine learning techniques that allow us to better understand and see inside the magnificent world of plants invisible to our naked eyes.
