Sustainable Agriculture

While Thunberg’s exclamation “How dare you!” echos across the world (2019 UN Climate Action Summit), Better Sense is enthusiastically innovating in the green tech domain, such as autonomous AI greenhouse.

#AutonomousGreenhouseChallenge

In July to Sept 2019, we (team Amazona) had the privilege to participate in one of the highest level of AI greenhouse competitions, organized by Wageningen University & Research and Tencent.

With fellow collaborators, we formed a cross disciplinary team of greenhouse growers, plant modelers, AI/data scientists and IoT experts. During the challenge, we explored multiple AI methodologies such as reinforcement learning and professional plant models to make an intelligent greenhouse control system for advanced greenhouses (Dutch Venlo type).

At the final hackathon on Sep 12, we had the honor to compete with some big names in the industry and academia, and delivered solid result. Well done team Amazona! Hopefully, with such projects we can contribute to the sustainable agriculture, and in particular saving the rain forests like Amazon (after which our team was named) from land grabbing.
