Agriculture today is driven by multiple sociological, economic and environmental forces.
Farmers today live in an environment that is in a constant state of flux and are being challenged to react and adapt at a pace seldom seen before.
Amongst a host of scientific developments and adoptions we at Veeville.Farm see AI as the most empowering technology yet in the way we grow and manage our crops. Our technologies allow farmers to gain a better understanding of the “ground realities now” more accurately and more quickly than ever before.
They also let the farmers anticipate and manage the future much better. Everything from crop disease identification, market price fluctuations, satellite imagery predicting growth patterns in a given field, to IoT sensors in the field, we are developing a platform that empowers the farmer to adapt and react like never before.
The following pages will give you a fair picture of the features we are building into Veeville.Farm
Bot is your question?
We are developing an Advisory Service to answer questions and clear doubts, so the farmer only grows crops and not questions.
And unlike a typical adviser the farmer can have a conversation with the Bot.
The engine powering the advisory service also initiates recommendations that are specific to that particular farmer based on hyper-local and global considerations.
The advisory engine is based on a state of the art Machine Comprehension Model that can digest content – like recorded best practices, chat logs etc and answer specific questions.
So the farmer can ask anything from “what the irrigation time table is for typeX potatoes” to “What is the min distance between seeds when planting potatoes?” and the Bot will answer.
“The advisory engine is based on a state of the art Machine Comprehension Model that can digest content – like recorded best practices, chat logs etc and answer specific questions.”
“We have built an AI pipeline that can classify images, audio and videos for the content they have and segment them for response.”
MORE THAN JUST WORDS
We know a single picture can speak more than a thousand words and hence enabled the platform to communicate not just with images but also audio and video.
We have built an AI pipeline that can classify images, audio and videos for the content they have and segment them for response.
The Bot now can answer or recommend with more than just words, so the answer to “how to use a particular pesticide?” will be a video segment showing the farmer just how to do that.
We have enabled the platform to be as natural to use as possible and one of the most important ways to interact is the ability to just talk to the bot.
We have designed speech recognition and designed it to suit this particular use case with special terms recognition etc.
So when the farmer talks to the Bot asking “How much many kgs of fertilizer for 3 acres of BT1023” the agent knows exactly what she is talking about!
“Platform is designed to be as natural to use as possible and one of the most important ways to interact is the ability to just talk to the bot.”
“AI lets the farmer diagnose diseases, identify weeds and bugs, classify the state of the crop etc. even when he is off-line”
IMAGES TO THE RESCUE
Not all questions come as words, we have built a state of the art image processing pipeline that lets the farmer diagnose diseases, identify weeds and bugs, classify the state of the crop etc even when he is off-line.
The farmer can now also use satellite imagery that the platform provides with its image analysis to make better decisions.
So the next time the farmer points his camera at a leaf that looks odd the Bot will be able to tell him what the disease is and what to do about it…even if he is offline.
YOU POINT WE TELL
There may be situations where the farmer wants to know something specific about what he is seeing, so we built a multi-modal model to let him do just that.
The farmer takes a picture and ask a specific question about it and the Bot will try and answer that. This also works for processes, so when the farmer point his camera at a new tool or pesticide and asks “How do I do this?” the Bot knows exactly what he wants.
Or he points his camera at a fruit and asks “Is that ripe for harvest?” the bot can analyze the image and give him an answer.
“We have built a multi-modal model to let the farmer ask specific questions about what he is seeing. For instance he could point his camera at a fruit and asks “Is that ripe for harvest?” the bot can analyze the image and give him an answer.”
“Our FarmKit combined with the Multi-modal AI models enable the farmer to get unprecedented insights of the process and enables fine grain control of the parameters that affect the crops.”
SENSE IN SENSORS
Our FarmKit consists of a set sensors that enable the Farmer to better understand everything from the pH value of the soil to the effectiveness of the pesticide sprayed. The kit combined with the Multi-modal AI models enable the farmer to get unprecedented insights of the process and enables fine grain control of the parameters that affect the crops.
JUST SET FLOW
The Workflow feature enables the farmer to shift the heavy lifting of tracking the steps in a specific process to the Bot. The Bot can keep track, raise flags and send notifications etc. And with connected devices the APIs also enable talking to other connected Farm devices.
So, for instance, setting the sprinklers to turn on when the humidity falls below a certain threshold is now a breeze.
“The Bot can keep track, raise flags, send notification and even enable action.”
BOUQUET OF SERVICES
We know there is more to agriculture than just the crops. Farmers need and access different kinds of services that make their lives easier, we have an ever growing bouquet of services like weather, market pricing, equipment buying/ renting, farmer networks etc that make life easier for the farmer.
