Agriculture 5.0: Unleashing AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to transform agriculture with applications on multiple farm machines from sprayers to combines. However, AI is not reaching its full potential of real-time, high-speed actionable insights because of significant bottlenecks in the data transmission speed between farm vehicles ​where data is collected and high-performance computers where AI processing takes place. This is limiting the use of intelligent technology on farms.

This Ceres project is developing a 5G pipeline to unlock the application of AI on UK farms allowing vast quantities of data, with high-precision location information to move rapidly between devices. It will enable growers to deploy AI-driven smart agriculture technologies to increase productivity and reduce costs overall, facilitating the next generation of UK agriculture.
