Machine learning in agriculture: podcast

Jaco Fourie sets up in a vineyard for a machine vision and image processing project.

“I never thought I’d work in agriculture – I wasn’t planning to work in agriculture. But actually, there’s a lot of [machine learning and AI] work in agriculture.”

In this episode of Plains FM podcast Duct Tape and Flip Flops, Machine Vision Principal Scientist Jaco Fourie talks to Josh and Josh about how machine learning and AI can bring advances in our primary industries.

He answers questions such as when did Lincoln Agritech start, and how has it grown since then? How important is it to design research projects around the needs of industry? And what have robots got to do with forestry?
