Weblink with slides – As climate change and global demographics begin to put excessive strain on the traditional farming model, the need for an agriculturally intelligent solution is vital. By 2050, the world population will increase by over 2 billion people. Current crop yields and freshwater resources will not be sufficient to sustain a population over 9 billion people. On May 15th 2017, the Machine Learning Society hosted this event to showcase high tech farming techniques used in vertical and urban farming. Our keynote speaker is Ryan Hooks of Huxley. Huxley uses computer vision, augmented reality (AR), and A.I. to greatly improve yield, while driving the down cost and resources requirements. Huxley is creating an “operating system for plants” to grow with 95% less water, 2x the speed, 2/3 less carbon output, and half the nutrients needed. Come to our event to learn more.
