"IoT, Food Production and Climate Change" by Alex Roscoe of Grothflux

Location: 18DEF

Due to climate change, resources like water and farm land are becoming scarce. With Earth's population due to hit 9.5 billion by 2050, we must become smarter on how we deliver the resources and energy that go into our food.

Thankfully, cloud tech and IoT devices deployed by farmers are now playing an integral role in managing these resources. Recent IoT advancements made sensor technology much more affordable. Cheaper devices created a staggering rise in data collection/storage and an acceleration in related technologies like cloud processing for AI and ML. Thanks to this revolution, Alex will present on how farmers are now able to utilize cloud tech built for agriculture (both rural and urban) to save money, reduce waste, reduce energy usage, and keep up with growing demand.
