How Will We Feed 8 Billion People? With AI’s Help, of Course

The Earth now needs to feed 8 billion people… every single day. The only way to meet this almost unimaginable demand for food is to continuously improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and cost basis of growing and delivering that food. That is the agriculture industry’s biggest challenge in the 21st century. Increasingly, agriculture is relying on artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver those gains.

The End of the Beginning of the End of Civilization as We Know It (Part 2)?

I think my dear old dad sometimes wished he’d been born in the American Wild West circa the 1850s. When I was a kid in England in the 1960s, we both used to love watching the American “Cowboys and Indians” programs on TV. Even now, almost 60 years later, the names of these westerns still trip off my tongue: Gunsmoke, Rawhide, Wagon … Read More → "The End of the Beginning of the End of Civilization as We Know It (Part 2)?"
