AI Impact in Agriculture

9 March 2023

With an ever-increasing global population, the problem of growing more food with higher nutritional content in the face of climate change and uncertain geopolitical situations is one that faces governments and agriculturalists around the world.

AI researcher Professor Helen Huang has partnered with Professor Ben Hayes from the Centre for Animal Science and Professor Scott Chapman from the School of Agriculture and Food Sciences to examine how to fuse domain expertise from computer science and agriculture to deliver enabling technologies in genetic and crop simulation, genetic analysis, and remote and proximal sensing, amongst many other applications. This next generation digital agricultural platform will enhance productivity and sustainability, and help solve this global problem more quickly.
