This presentation will provide an overview of Blue River Technology's use of GPUs in developing their See and Spray technology for Precision Agriculture. We will motivate the use of Deep Learning in detection and classification of crops and weeds in production environments, and highlight the ways in which NVIDIA GPUs have provided the tools and platform for training powerful models. NVIDIA GPUs have also helped us perform real-time inference on working machines in the field. This talk will show how these systems perform and provide videos of the machines in operation.
Artificial intelligence has opened a new class of efficient technologies to help the American farmer from AI-assisted thinning, weeding and spraying for row crops to automated soft fruit picking. This panel will discuss the latest AI innovations for the farm and the policies that will continue to advance U.S. agriculture through the 21st Century.
