George Varkey, MBA Intern – Amii

The global population is expected to reach more than nine billion by 2050, which will require an increase in agricultural production by at least 60%. As the world population increases, necessities such as land, water and other crucial resources are becoming insufficient to meet the growing demand. There is a need for a smarter approach to increase the efficiency and productivity of how we farm. This talk will cover some of the main use cases of AI in agriculture, how it brings a revolution to solve traditional farming problems and how it can help overcome the challenges of ensuring a sustainable future.

Wayne Madhlangobe, CTO & Farnoush Farnia, CEO  – Intelius.AI
