“Developing Innovation Strategies in the era of Data-driven Agriculture” international symposium

Date: October 29, 2019
Venue: Jeonju, Korea

Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations has declared that intelligent agriculture or smart farming is the key to the future. Farmers have access to computer-guided equipment with GPS for tasking crop protection agents and fertilizer application. Sensors loaded at unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and satellite for farm observation provide agricultural information service to farmers, farm consultant, and agricultural processing industries, to help them understand spatial differences in their crops & their health and soil & field condition, and produce tasking map of treatment instructions for agricultural practices and policy. It is expected that the agriculture sector will be the one of the largest users of UAV in the near future. Sensor networks based on the Internet of things (IoT) are increasingly being used to meet the challenge of appropriate crop and field management decision making from the big data generated by these systems. Emerging artificial intelligence (AI) technology facilitates farmers to analyze the overwhelming data, and the significance hidden in the avalanche of that data.

The primary aims of this seminar are 1) to address huge potentials for AI technology to revolutionize agriculture, 2) to assess the current status and challenges of UAV and other remote sensing technologies for smart agriculture, and 3) to develop cooperative innovation strategies towards data-driven agriculture. It is to identify research outputs with potential applications for small-scale farmers in Asia and the Pacific region.
