IBM Research / IBM AgroPad – AI-powered technology will help farmers health-check soil and water
The research prototype, the AgroPad, enables real-time, on-location, chemical analysis of a soil or water sample, using AI. Since the paper-based tests can be reliably performed by non-experts, public data collection with instant digitization in chemical sensing becomes a real possibility.
Along with low cost, mass production of the paper based device and large scale deployment through mobile and cloud technologies, the exploratory prototype could revolutionize digital agriculture and environmental testing.
