Getting Value from AI in Agriculture
November 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This Agri-Tech Week event will be a presentation by Dr Matthew Smith, Director of Business Development at Microsoft, exploring what AI is, how agriculture will get value from AI and how the technology will enable “farm to fork” transformation.
The discussion afterwards will look at how AI is influencing and will continue to shape the future of agriculture in the UK, whilst acknowledging the need to avoid “de-skilling” the farmer.
The event is hosted by Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology (LIAT) Riseholme Campus. LIAT has expertise in many areas but is particularly well known for its work in robotics.
Its scientists are integrating cutting-edge 3D imaging and automation into harvesting and weeding technologies, while colleagues are investigating the genetic code of food borne pathogens.
