Robot Farmers

Recently shared on EngadgetBlue River Technology in Sunnyvale, California is testing “See and Spray”– machine learning and AI software inside a robotic tractor attachment that aims to change the chemical game. The program can recognize the difference between crops and weeds, then sprays herbicide only on the unwanted plant.

Traditionally, farmers applying herbicide and other chemicals spray the entire field. CEO and co-founder Jorge Heraud says using his AI and machine learning sprayer would cut chemical costs a tenth of the cost. If a mid-sized operation is about 700 acres, only spraying the weeds on a farmer’s fields could knock herbicide costs down from about $100,000 to $10,000.

“You can save on the impact that we have to the environment, right now we are frankly overusing chemistry… about 80 percent of the chemicals we use don’t end up in the right place,” Heraud said.

  2. As a professional counselor who has worked in the addictions field for over 20 years I
    want to make it clear that pornography addiction is a CHEMICAL
    ADDICTION. NEVER! Viewing pornography leaves in its wake feelings of frustration, irritation, depression. This is the part
    that generates feelings of right or wrong. These tiny chemicals drive our
    emotions, feelings and behaviors. This part of
    the brain generates survival appetites that drive the rest of the body toward what it demands, such as oxygen, water, food,
    sleep, sex, etc. James Olds discovered the power of the Midbrain when doing experiments with mice.
    My interpretation of this is that the mind or spirit is the electrical intelligence that lives in this physical chemical body and
    brain. In his fascinating book entitled “The Mind and the Brain” Dr.

    Jeffery Schwartz differentiates between the mind and the brain. When one comes to understand that this addiction is a brain disease they are more likely
    to accept the treatment that is necessary.

  3. Hey exceptional blog! Does running a blog like this require a massive amount work?

    A politician threw a party in his honor. A Cambodian court has granted bail to seven out of 10 foreigners facing
