Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board
The exchange of innovation and technology is essential for any industry to overcome current issues and adapt to face future challenges and opportunities. The use of technology in Agriculture & Horticulture is nothing new. Farmers are continuously seeking ways to reduce cost, improve quality and advance productivity. But what can be learned from other industries? What is out there and how can we exploit advances in engineering manufacturing, computer science or the medical arena and apply it to the future of precision farming?
The AHDB’s Smart Agriculture Conference is an opportunity for scientists, researchers and engineers across multiple disciplines to build relationships that stimulate discussion and identify potential research and application opportunities that address the need for technological development.
The conference will focus on smart technology encompassing engineering, sensors, nano technology, decision support systems and robotics and will be presented in three key areas: Sensors, Data & Application.
Professor Hart will speak on the topic of optimisation and learning from data and its potential for use within the agricultural industry
