Keynote: Big Data Meets Big Agriculture - UAV Solutions for Modern Farming
Senior Research and Development Engineer
Precision farming is a Big Data problem without enough Big Data. As farms get bigger, it is becoming more difficult for farmers to monitor the entire crop, and thus they tend to overspray chemicals to avoid disease outbreaks and to address other production problems that they cannot monitor. One novel solution to the problem involves the use of small autonomous crop surveying drones, which can do daily or weekly aerial imaging of an entire farm. This presentation will discuss the latest applications of such vehicles, as well as the data and data analysis opportunities in this exciting new market.
