FarmVisionAI has released a mobile app designed to engage growers in-field with vision AI stress detections. The mobile app brings FarmVisionAI’s horticulturist trained AI to a smartphone platform that can be used while scouting plants and walking the farm. Location specific information allows the grower and FarmVisionAI to validate detections and supplement imagery with close-up pictures taken with the phone’s camera. The grower’s pictures are geo-tagged to the location and show up in the desktop application that displays the grow in a “google-earth” like visualization. Notes, recommendations, and actions can be added to the imagery to add value and highlight what is happening in the grow and what needs to be done.
“The FarmVisionAI mobile app is a critical piece of functionality that bridges the gap between growers and operators,” said Jeff Bisberg, Illumitex CEO. “Our real-time imagery, whether plants or equipment in the field of view, is the ground truth and provides a critical piece of reality and transparency that can cut through communication barriers and finger pointing while enormously improving our AI.”
“Growing at scale can be extremely complex. The ability for FarmVisionAI users to capture images of specific issues through the mobile app is huge,” said Mark McDevitt, FarmVisionAI horticulture science leader. “First, pictures are securely stored and organized in the FarmVisionAI system instead of growers' phones. Second, it allows for analysis and diagnosis from individuals from anywhere in the world. And third, it’s a repository for intellectual property in the form of visually based growing knowledge, specific to that site, that can be used for training, benchmarking and SOPs.”
The FarmVisionAI mobile application combined with the Starter-Kit and award-winning web application gives farmers an easy way to experiment and learn how artificial intelligence can help make farming more productive and profitable.
