Deveron catching the attention of The Globe and MailMarch 20, 2018
In his recent piece for The Globe and Mail, Big Data and AI are poised to transform Canada’s natural-resources sector, Tyler Hamilton highlighted Deveron’s case study on machine learning. Done in conjunction with Raptor Maps, we were able to provide a geospatial yield estimate for a pumpkin farmer.
It wouldn’t be possible, really, without the Internet of Things and its rapidly expanding network of low-cost, data-gathering sensors, which touch everything from dairy farming to aquaculture.
…Deveron UAS of Toronto, uses sensor-equipped drones and machine learning technology to count and analyze the size distribution of pumpkins, allowing farmers to accurately estimate yield per acre before negotiating sales agreements with retailers.
More machine learning in ag to come in 2018!
