A.I. Will Help Feed a Growing Planet with FarmView
By the year 2040, there will be more people on the planet than food to feed them. Researchers want to change that: a sustainable solution to the emerging world food crisis is sprouting in an artificial intelligence (A.I.) lab in Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute. Much more than a four-wheeled "robot for agriculture," FarmView is a multidisciplinary research project to develop A.I. technologies that will improve plant breeding and crop management through automated decision tools.

- What paradigm shift is needed in how we grow food for our planet, if more farmable land and more fresh water are not realistic or sustainable options?
- How can we control, measure and analyze crop data by employing robotics, sensing, and machine learning technologies, to name a few?
- Why focus on grain sorghum plant breeding, and how will plant scientists be better able to understand crop growth in ways once unimaginable?
