I gave a talk last week in Leshan, in Szechuan province (mainland China), on the application of AI to diagnosing crop diseases (from images of leaves) and predicting disease course, disease response to treatment, etc. I reviewed a bit of existing literature and suggested some new twists based on discussions with farmers, crop doctors and agricultural researchers in Leshan. This was part of a collaboration between Chinese knowledge management firm KComber (and in particular their Yoonop service, http://www.kcomber.com/sites/home/ccd.html) and my bio-AI project Mozi AI Health and decentralized AI project SingularityNET.
The talk I gave in Leshan wasn’t video-recorded, so after I got back home to Hong Kong I recorded a post-talk video going through the same concepts from the talk, using the same slides, with a few additions… This is it….
(I was kind of half-asleep when recording the video as it was well past midnight but, that’s when I found a free 30 min for this … so it goes … 😉 …
The slides from the talk, saved to PDF, are at: http://goertzel.org/Chengdu.pdf (This lacks the robot videos I showed in the talk in Leshan, but those videos are somewhat peripheral to the main topic anyway….)
