5G – A foundation for value chain disruption
Much societal-scale innovation is today hindered by strong oligopolies supported by stale ecosystems. Changing the way we produce goods and services, including how we grow, produce and consume food, is very difficult, not only because of consumer behavioral patterns but also because of information shortage/monopolies and huge investment barriers. Digitalization and 5G will change this scene. Permanently.
14.35 – 15.00 Talk by Mats Persson & Oscar Bagge, IBM
Can AI help farmers reduce chemicals?
What started as wild discussion around the coffee machine in Malmö ended up in a research project with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Alnarp. During several years we have together investigated if AI, weather data and image recognition can be used to track infections within potatoes. The aim is to reduce the amount of fungicides used in farming. This talk will will also give an overview on how IBM globaly is enhancing farmers decisions with AI.
