-Global food systems generate $12 trillion of hidden costs, from environmental damage to public health
-Revolutionizing current agri-food systems would bring economic returns of around $5.7 trillion, creating new business opportunities of up to $4.5 trillion each year by 2030 and creating environmental and health benefit
If we can incorporate technology into already existing farming practices, we can increase production enough to feed the growing world. Technology can be used to grow more food on existing farms and to grow food in small spaces, such as indoor farms.
Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts (e.g. apples with marks or colour deviations). To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. AI is able to solve these challenges in no time at all. With IDS NXT ocean, there is now a user-friendly complete solution for industrial applications available. It requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming.
