An Artificial Intelligence System is an attempt the world over to imitate or mimic human thought processes using machines. In very simple terms it is trying to create a very simple human mind inside computers – not one that is capable of emotions but capable of pattern recognition like humans are. As a corollary, it also includes machine learning – computer systems able to understand and learn from data instead of simply processing data which means it must be capable of thought process.
Benefits of AI in farming
Artificial Intelligence System can help any industry including farming in myriad different ways. Some of these are listed below –
- Seed selection – Artificial Intelligence System has helped farmers to find the best quality hybrid seeds which will provide optimum output. Machine learning aids farmers in recognizing the correct type of seed depending on weather patterns. Predication would also take into account other parameters such as soil type, humidity, precipitation as well as market demand.
- Use of artificial intelligence in harvesting – Due to lack of manual labor harvesting is often delayed. This causes a loss since seeds become ripe and unfit for sale. Artificial Intelligence System helps drive and operate machinery which can harvest crops and pick fruits like oranges from trees without any human agency.
- Increasing yield per acre – Artificial Intelligence System is aiding farmers to make more profits. Farmers are now able to make better crop choices, make better seed choices and find the best type of fertilizer. It also helps in analyzing market trends which makes it easier for a farmer to understand which crops will be in demand in a few months.
- Better management of crops by drones – Using drones and analyzing the images by use of Artificial Intelligence System farmers are now able to exactly identify the location where weeds are growing, the average growth of plant every week and have access to the whole host of other information.
