How Sensors, Robotics And Artificial Intelligence Will Transform Agriculture

Jennifer Kite-Powell, Contributor for Forbes:  The world population is expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050. China and India, the two largest countries in the world, have populations totalling around one billion. In four years, by 2022, India is predicted to have the largest population in the world, surpassing China.

In a new initiative called FarmView, researchers are working to combine sensors, robotics and artificial intelligence to create a fleet of mobile field robots they hope will improve plant breeding and crop-management practices.  Full Article:
