Event details:

Can machines be taught to spot diseased crops and weeds and take action to solve the problem? So-called machine learning is already being used to spot patterns and make decisions – in fraud detection, advertising and self-driving vehicles, and it is poised to be the next new decision support tool for agriculture.

Building a connected farm via the Internet of Things – the potential for the Internet of Crops and even the Internet of Animals could be the new wave of technological support for the industry.

We’ll be looking at ways of bringing high-tech machine learning and artificial intelligence onto the farm to add value to experience and agronomy.
