SLANTRANGE Artificial Intelligence Techniques Featured in Forbes

SLANTRANGE was recently featured in a Forbes article covering the emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in agriculture. The article, written by Ryan Rakestraw from Monsanto Growth Ventures and Amrit Acharya from Mckinsey & Company, reviews the various ways AI is being used for precision agriculture and highlights some of the companies that are making effective use of the technology.

“Some have criticized AI as being too rigid for agriculture environments, indicating that there is just too much variability.

Such was the case with SLANTRANGE, a San Diego-based startup, which has developed a machine vision system to measure crop populations and detect weeds.”
