Peggy and Josh Peschel, assistant professor, agricultural and biosystems engineering, Iowa State University, talk about the biggest drivers for AI and machine learning in the supply chain today.
Peggy chats with Amy Tabb, research agriculture engineer, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Services Laboratory, about creating automation in the tree fruit industry.
Peggy says agriculture and healthcare have some things in common—including the fact they both have a direct impact on global health.
Peggy chats with James Schnable, assistant professor, Dept. of Agronomy and Horticulture, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, who says the way he would measure anything about plants in the past would be to send students to the field.
Peggy says blockchain is a continuously growing list of linked, secured records called blocks that contain transactional data, and it can benefit agriculture in several ways including traceability and supply-chain visibility.
Peggy recaps today’s show and talk about how technology has come a long way and how it will allow the next-generation to make decisions, reduce labor, increase margins, and improve implementation of all vertical markets, helping the global economy.
Peggy chats with Karen Panetta, IEEE fellow and dean of graduate engineering education, Tufts University, who says IoT technology is instrumental in the agriculture field throughout the entire lifecycle.
