LGN — Edge AI in Agriculture
Edge AI is a type of AI that is implemented and used at the edge of a network rather than in the cloud or a central location. In the agriculture industry, edge AI is being used to make farming more efficient and sustainable while helping to feed a growing global population. Here are a few ways in which edge AI is being used in farming:
- Precision agriculture: Edge AI-powered sensors and drones can be used to gather data on soil conditions, crop growth, and weather patterns, allowing farmers to make more informed decisions about when and how to plant, fertilize, and irrigate their crops. This helps to reduce waste and improve crop yields, resulting in more food being produced per acre of land.
- Automation: Edge AI can be used to automate certain tasks on the farm, such as watering and fertilizing crops, weeding, and even harvesting. This helps to reduce labor costs and improve efficiency, while also reducing the risk of injuries to workers.
- Livestock management: Edge AI is also being used in the livestock industry to optimize feeding, breeding, and health monitoring. For example, sensors can be used to track the movement and behavior of cows, allowing farmers to identify when a cow is in heat and ready to breed, or when a cow is sick and needs to be separated from the herd.
Overall, the use of edge AI in farming is helping to increase crop yields and improve the efficiency of food production, making it possible to feed more people with fewer resources. As edge AI technology continues to advance, we can expect to see even more innovative applications in the agriculture industry in the future.
