A new ITU focus group on AI and IoT for agriculture

ITU establishes a focus group about ‘AI and IoT for digital agriculture to examine cyber-physical systems as groundwork for standardization to stimulate their deployment for agriculture worldwide. The focus group will collaborate with the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The group will explore capabilities related to agricultural and geospatial data; improve the acquisition, handling, and analysis of these data; enable effective decision-making; and guide interventions to improve agricultural production processes. The study aims to support progress in precision farming, predictive analytics for smart agriculture, optimization of cultivable acreage, remote cattle monitoring, agricultural robotics, and greenhouse automation.
