  • Story continues below advertisement – – – – – – We’re ingesting hundreds of terabytes of satellite imagery data, and we’ve got thousands of sensors in fields, all providing us information on a per-second, per-minute or daily basis, says Kevin Grant, the company’s chief technology officer.
  • As the amount of data piles up, however, companies such as Farmers Edge are increasingly turning to machine-learning technology and other flavours of artificial intelligence (AI) to help spot patterns or trends that might otherwise go unnoticed using conventional agronomics and human labour.
  • Another company, Deveron UAS of Toronto, uses sensor-equipped drones and machine learning technology to count and analyze the size distribution of pumpkins, allowing farmers to accurately estimate yield per acre before negotiating sales agreements with retailers.
  • In Vancouver, a company called MineSense is already using machine learning to analyze data collected from sensors installed on shovels, buckets and conveyor systems that move ore in this case, copper, nickel, zinc or iron.
  • The system uses machine learning to look for patterns in the data we collect and gets smarter as it predicts the grade and condition of ore, CEO Jeff More says, adding that the technology allows his customers currently large copper mines in British Columbia and Chile to find pockets of…
