The Tech-Savvy Community Feeding the World
Think about the food you ate today. Do you think about how a seed got into the ground, received proper nutrients, was harvested from the field, turned into food, & transported to your local store? A farmer thinks about it 24/7. Despite labor shortages, rising costs, extreme weather & limited land, they must provide for our growing population, expected to reach 10B by 2050. Farmers are redefining what it means to be a tech industry—bringing tech like machine learning, computer vision, robotics & data analytics to the farm. They use tech daily to make hundreds of decisions & execute tasks with extreme precision in small windows of time. This presentation features a farmer’s first-hand account of the power of tech on his farm & why you can find as much tech on the farm as in Silicon Valley.
