Announcing Ranveer Chandra(Microsoft) Keynote
We are announcing Ranveer Chandra as our keynote speaker. Ranveer heads up Microsoft’s precision agriculture project FarmBeats.
He believes that data, coupled with the farmer’s knowledge and intuition about his or her farm, will increase farm productivity, and also reduce costs.
Data, information about the state of the farm, is not easily retained by the farmer. The cost of the technology and the lack of Wi-Fi makes it difficult for farmers to digitalize their soil.
FarmBeats are building several unique solutions to solve these problems using low-cost sensors, drones and machine learning algorithms.
Ranveer started FarmBeats in 2015, has filed over a hundred patents and has made Virtual Wi-Fi, one of Microsoft Research’s most downloaded softwares.
We are very excited to have Ranveer talk about the future of the digital farm, June 20th in Steinkjer.
