Machine vision and machine learning in Ag-tech

What we'll do

Join us for a journey through agriculture technology with Rudi Bartels, fellow organiser of the AgTech Brisbane Meetup.

Rudi is an agricultural engineer who has been working in the ag-tech sector for 30 years and with machine vision since 1999. He currently
manages machine learning based machine vision projects at the ARC Research Hub for Driving Farming Productivity and Disease Prevention and their current industry partners are in the sugarcane, berry and aquaculture sectors.

AI and machine learning are being used in various agricultural applications including: yield prediction algorithms based on weather and historical yield data; image recognition algorithms to detect pest and diseases in plants; and robotics to harvest different types of specialty crops.

We are in the midst of exciting times, when agriculture is transforming from the “old” precision agriculture to the era of artificial intelligence. We cannot wait to see you at this months meetup to learn about these developments with you.
