Agriculture Tech Aims to Optimize Science of Farming
Tool innovation sparked the first agricultural revolution 10,000 years ago, but today there are a growing set of new digital tools such as robotics, machine learning and data analytics helping farmers feed billions of people around the word.
In a world continuously transformed by digital technology, farming is ripe for significant change.
“Agriculture has been one of the few industries that hasn’t been substantially disrupted,” said Lt. Governor of California Gavin Newsom at the Forbes Ag Tech Conference in Salinas, Calif., located just south of Silicon Valley.
