University of Florida researchers are using artificial intelligence to help citrus growers better forecast their seasonal production. So far, they’ve found in a preliminary study that their technology predicts yields with 98 percent accuracy.
Some people seem to view drones as toys, but they can be dangerous. In fact, about 1,000 people per year are injured from using drones incorrectly. To address the potential peril, two University of Florida scientists are offering ways to keep people from getting hurt while using drones.
Florida native and CEO of Agriculture Intelligence Matt Donovan has discovered a “renewed environment with a fertile ground for talent.” A resident company in UF Innovate | The Hub, Agriculture Intelligence is a precision agriculture science company combining machine vision, machine learning and artificial intelligence to provide cloud-based, precision data for specialty crops.
UF agricultural engineer Yiannis Ampatzidis says artificial intelligence — the convergence of new tools for data collection with cloud computing to analyze the explosion of information — is changing the face of agriculture in a way that is nothing short of revolutionary.
University of Florida researchers are developing AI applications for agriculture. And the technology - computer vision for smart sprayers - is now being licensed and deployed in pilot tests by an agricultural equipment company.
