Added on 28 July 2022
The panel's focus, "Reducing Costs and Solving Labor Challenges with Artificial Intelligence (AI), Automation, and Robotics," was moderated by Robert Colangelo, CEO of Green Sense Farms Holdings, and featured Ken Tran, Chief Technology Officer at Koidra; Eric Adamson, co-founder and CEO of Tortuga AgTech; Jake Felser, Chief Technology Officer at Freight Farms; and Allison Kopf, Chief Growth Officer at IUNU.
Here is a breakdown of the discussion, which offered several insights into where the future of technology lies for the CEA and vertical farming industries.
On What Automation, AI, and Robotics Really Mean …
Adamson: "It's about hardware and software applied to a particular problem, and it's especially valuable if you can ID one task where it can be applied, rather than trying to solve all your problems at once."
Felser: "It's about ease of use, making farming bullet-proof, and addressing dull, dirty, and dangerous duties in your operation."
