In this session, CEO Ofir Schlam will talk about the huge opportunity in agriculture, a 4 Trillion dollar industry that saw little disruption in recent decades. Another unbelievable number is 35% - the amount of crop losses every farmer in the world faces annually by weeds, diseases, insects, and fertilizer deficiencies. Ofir will explain Taranis' unique AI challenges in developing AgroBrain – our AI agronomist and AgroSet the ImageNet for Ag – our proprietary data set. Taranis, a precision agriculture intelligence platform, helps Ag Retailers, input manufacturers and large farms increase their yields and cut costs by giving them a way to effectively monitor their fields, make informed decisions, and then act on them. The system uses sophisticated computer vision, data science, and deep learning algorithms to detect early symptoms of weeds, uneven emergence, nutrient deficiencies, disease/insect infestations, water damage, equipment problems and more so that farmers can address issues quickly and understand the impact on yield and cost of production.
