For years farmers, entrepreneurs and investors have discussed and debated the future of the farm, and in particular, the role robotics and automation can and will play in today’s farm and that of the future.  However, today, lack of affordable and available labor alongside significant advances in robotics, computer vision, artificial intelligence and internet connectivity are creating a unique environment encouraging the adoption of advanced robotics on the farm.  On this week’s Deep Dive, we will discuss the ways in which automation and robotics are positioned to impact farm management practices and the potential opportunities, strategies and challenges associated with the development, implementation and commercialization of these solutions.
