SENSORS, ROBOTICS, AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN AGRICULTURE

SENSORS, ROBOTICS, AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN AGRICULTURE

By:  Forbes Contributor: Jennifer Kite-Powell “Dantes

We need new ways to grow foods that are smarter and helps regulate our use of land, water and energy in order to feed the planet and avoid a global food crisis.

The world population is expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050. China and India, the two largest countries in the world, have populations totaling around one billion. In four years, by 2022, India is predicted to have the largest population in the world, surpassing China. Continue reading SENSORS, ROBOTICS, AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN AGRICULTURE

HEADING INTO AN ERA OF DISRUPTION AND OPPORTUNITY

HEADING INTO AN ERA OF DISRUPTION AND OPPORTUNITY

Futurist, Author, CEO The Futures Agency

We are heading into an era of dramatic disruption and opportunity. Exponential technological progress is fueling a multitude of key trends such as The Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, big data-driven business intelligence and prediction, bionics, robotics and new human-machine interfaces and the rise of cloud-everything (i.e. content, money, education, health, transportation etc).

DRIVERLESS TRACTOR: #FARMTECH

DRIVERLESS TRACTOR

Farm Tech is Here

The tractor is an unmanned, fully autonomous tractor that can be monitored and controlled by the farmer’s desktop or tablet, giving them the ability to control the tractor or access data from different locations.

Pre-mapped private paths help the NHDrive concept tractor easily move around the farm. Continue reading DRIVERLESS TRACTOR: #FARMTECH

3D PRINTABLE LIQUID MATERIAL MADE OUT OF LIVING CELLS

3D PRINTABLE LIQUID MATERIAL MADE OUT OF LIVING CELLS

Imagine the possibilities if you could use 3D printable liquid material made out of living cells.  This material could be used for cartilage, implants, joints and as time and research continues, we could print vital organs.

Imagine a world of true body repair.  Imagine the new medicine where technology meets living cells and repairs the human body without transplant or inorganic materials that set off airport security. Continue reading 3D PRINTABLE LIQUID MATERIAL MADE OUT OF LIVING CELLS

CARBON DIOXIDE…A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO GLOBAL WARMING. WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT IT?

CARBON DIOXIDE…A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO GLOBAL WARMING.  WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT IT?

In our meta modern era climate change is here because of carbon dioxide…a major contributor to globla warming.  What are you doing about it?  It’s easier than ever before to actively participate in our world, to discover new ways of improving old, distructive ways.  It is absolutely possible to help to change the direction of climate change. In wanting to do so, it is imperative that one researches and inquires and then interact.

Never be complacent. There is no need to “live within” this down-hill change. Fight for the atmosphere.  Disposal or harnessing the carbon for energy.  Pick a side and participate.

Renewables and nuclear no substitute for carbon dioxide disposal, argues leading climate physicist

In a paper published in Nature Climate Change, leading climate physicist Professor Myles Allen, from the Oxford Martin Programme on Resource Stewardship, argues that investment in technologies to capture and dispose of carbon dioxide is vital to stabilise climate, especially at temperatures ‘well below 2 degrees Celsius’, as called for in Paris, and that ‘spare no expense’ approaches to cutting emissions in the short term may even be counterproductive.

THIS ONE-EYED ROBOT IS YOUR OWN PERSONAL MINION AND IT MAKES VIDEO CALLS

There’s a lot of “soon to come” news in the family robot market. Most of these robots are either still in their crowdsourced project phase or on the precipice of hitting the market, like the long-anticipated Jibo family robot which has been in the works since 2o12 and expected on the market in late 2016 for around $746.
