WS6: International Workshop on AI and Pervasive IoT for sustainable Smart Farming

Submission Link: https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=29311&track=113005

SCOPE:

The emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) techniques has prompted new and innovative research and development directions for precision agriculture. Typically, these techniques are used in agriculture to improve various farming practices such as stress detection, crop growth assessment, disease monitoring, pest control, irrigation, and field monitoring and analysis.
IoT systems deployed in agriculture provide a wealth of information on crop yields, soil quality, nutritional measurements and other valuable information for better decisions that improve overall agricultural productivity.

The active implementation of AI-enabled tools and techniques, through the increased analysis of real-time agricultural imagery data (aerial, terrestrial, aquatic, satellite, etc.) is improving sustainable agricultural practices.

In addition, it operates autonomously without human intervention and makes the process of large-scale farmland monitoring simpler.
It is clear that the use of AI-enabled drones in agriculture will contribute to social good and help the farming community worldwide to migrate towards smart and sustainable agriculture. This workshop aims to explore advances in tools and techniques using AI and IoT for smart and sustainable agriculture.
