Agriculture is one of the major global contributors to climate change and, at the same time, directly impacted by its consequences. The sector also faces the immense challenge of meeting the rising food demand of a growing world population despite a lack of human resources, especially in countries like Japan, Germany and France. Artificial Intelligence (AI) can lead the way to sustainable farms which engage in environmentally friendly production in a manner as efficient as mass production.
This session discusses which milestones will need to be passed to leverage the potential of AI for environmentally friendly, sustainable agriculture on a global level. It also discusses ongoing collaboration by Japan, France and Germany in this field and how these collaborative efforts can and should be improved in the future.
