A data refinery, built to understand our planet
We have developed an A.I. platform that gives us the ability to support the decision-making process in many different fields and fulfill each of our customers’ needs. The ec2ce platform's automation allows us to quickly accomplish new requirements while staying time and cost efficient.
Sophisticated machine-learning methodologies, proprietary association rules, and fuzzy logic algorithms are embedded in the platform. It's then able to select which features and algorithms should be used in each case, creating a standarized tool that is easily customized for real-world applications.
Our strategy and technology roadmap positions ec2ce as fruit of state-of-the-art in A.I. and defines a clear path as spearheads in technological development.
> Drag & Drop Farming
Graphically design your farm by dragging and dropping plants into the map. The game-like interface is learned in just a few minutes so you’ll have the whole growing season planned in no time.
> Growing Regimens
Build regimens for taking care of a plant throughout its entire life by scheduling sequences to run when the plant is a certain age. Regimens can be reused, making replanting a breeze.
> Sequence Building
Quickly create custom sequences to take full advantage of your hardware – no coding is required. Simply drag and drop basic operations together, adjust the parameters, and save.
> Real-Time Control
Move FarmBot and operate its tools in real-time with the manual controls. Scare birds away from work or next time friends are over, pull out your phone for a quick and impressive demo.
Gamaya improves efficiency and sustainability of farming businesses by offering compelling agronomy solutions, enabled by hyperspectral imaging and artificial intelligence

Solutions for Agronomic Service Providers Built on Hi-Resolution and Satellite Imagery.
PrecisionHawk empowers enterprise leaders with aerial data and analytics (and it's transforming the way business is done).
Our quest started with a puzzle. How is it that neighboring fields, with identical climates, cultivated by the same farmer, with the same seeds, fertilizers and irrigation, produce widely varied yields, sometimes tens of percents apart?
Resson combines the latest advancements in computer vision, machine learning and big data analytics to provide growers with actionable insights using their field data. Since the inception in 2013, our primary mission has been to empower growers with the digital tools to enable use of their field data to make better informed decisions and improve productivity from every acre of their farm. The predictive analytics solution from Resson goes beyond NDVI maps derived from satellite and drone imagery to virtually scout every part of the field to detect, classify and geo-locate specific anomalies, pests and diseases. We provide a simple and intuitive cloud-based platform to help better manage yields, crop inputs and agronomy decisions. We work with strategic partners and third-party service providers to bring complete, scalable end-to-end solution to the growers. Resson is a fast-growing company, with field operations across three continents, diverse geographies and multiple crops.
Our goal is to help protect your crops from threats so you can fill your storehouses. We do that by creating tools that provide valuable, timely, and relevant insights.
Our agricultural models are transparent, visual, and configurable to your needs. We believe that no one can make better decisions about their crops than the grower, and technology should be used as a force-multiplier for
The Climate Corporation (Subsidiary of Monsanto)

Your 24/7 Automated Irrigation Advisor
While robots are now capable of performing many tasks, it is not always easy. VRC's vision-based algorithms enable robots to autonomously create three-dimensional maps of unknown areas of interest whether this is mapping a building or modeling a grapevine. The maps and models enable robots to intelligently and accurate perform a myriad of tasks whether it is vacuuming a floor or pruning a grapevine. Applications have systems that perform meticulous detailed work or tasks requiring robots to autonomously operate effectively in very complex environments and at speeds of up to and beyond 3 miles per hour.
A History of Violence: Steven Pinker at TEDx NewEngland
Contrary to the popular impression view that we are living in extraordinarily violent times, rates of violence at all scales have been in decline over the course of history. I explore how this decline could have happened despite the existence of a constant human nature.

What Do Retired People Do All Day?
Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day my wife and I went into town and went into a shop.
We were only in there for about 5 minutes. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and said, ‘Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?’
He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him a turd. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tyres.
So my wife called him a baboon. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.
Personally, we didn’t care. We came into town by bus. We try to have a little fun each day now that we’re retired. It’s important at our age.
