Star Wars and Star Trek: How Precision Ag may land in the farm of the future.

The presentation will present the newest emerging machinery based technologies that will have implications for the future of Agriculture in Western Canada. The focus is on the IoT space and how the advancements in sensors, mems (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems), telematics, telemetry and big data algorithms bring to life machine vision, artificial intelligence and autonomous operation to the Western Canadian farm. The presentation will also address some of the issues that may arise with the technology.

This presentation is in its 6th revision as it continually changes with technological advances that are emerging almost weekly. My hope is this may provide an advance look at what is coming down the pipeline. But more importantly, it instils in you a need to stay engaged with advancing technology, and informed on how it may affect your operations.
