As artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous machines become more common in agriculture, the industry is going through enormous changes. Ofir Schlam, CEO and co-founder of Taranis, a leading precision agriculture intelligence platform, recently shared more information about these changes in an interview.
Taranis is an AI-powered agriculture intelligence platform that was selected to be part of John Deere’s startup collaborator. It uses sophisticated computer vision, data science and deep learning algorithms to enable farmers to make informed decisions.
The platform is capable of monitoring fields and finding early symptoms of uneven emergence, weeds, nutrient deficiencies, disease or insect infestations, water damage and equipment issues. Overseeing millions of acres of farmland in the U.S., Argentina, Ukraine, Brazil and Russia, the company employs over 75 people worldwide and is headquartered in Tel Aviv with subsidiaries in Argentina, Brazil and the U.S.
