Council Post: Artificial Intelligence And Precision Farming: The Dawn Of The Next Agricultural Revolution


Co-Founder and CTO of Prospera Technologies, leading the company's vision to transform the way food is grown using data science and AI. The human race has come a long way in our ability to produce food at scale. Historian and author Yuval Noah Harari refers to it in his book Sapiens as "an agricultural revolution," using wheat as an example. Ten thousand years ago, wheat was a wild grass that grew in a relatively small region in the Middle East. Today, wheat can be considered one of the most successful plants in history, according to the evolutionary criteria of survival and reproduction. In regions where wheat never existed, such as the Great Plains of North America, you can drive for hundreds of miles without seeing anything else but wheat fields.
