Small Robot Co uses Intel® Geti™ Platform for efficient modelling to create more sustainable crops
Helping farmers feed the world while regenerating the planet is the driving force behind Small Robot Co. Their vision is “per plant farming”: rather than treating a field of crops together as one entity, they treat each plant individually to reduce external inputs such as fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. Machine learning and AI are a crucial part of the per plant farming process, as each plant needs to be not only detected, but also labelled and segmented, to create computer vision AI models. The challenge for Small Robot Co was that their existing workflows to develop custom CV models were inefficient. The Intel Geti platform enabled Small Robot Co to break the bottlenecks of sorting through large amounts of data to rapidly build AI models.
