0 Comments

Kyushu University and Fujitsu Ltd have announced that they will conduct joint research in the field of agriculture, for two years beginning lare this month, with the goal of increasing the stability and sophistication of agricultural production using artificial intelligence.

In this joint research, Fujitsu and Kyushu University will take plant growth status data, including plant height and the leaf surface area measured using Kyushu University's phytometric technology, and a proprietary plant growth model that integrates the spatiotemporal change data of plant theory, and integrate with a Fujitsu-developed AI engine able to predict information including growth rate and harvest periods, in real time.

The two organizations will also conduct R&D on systems that can bring about efficient plant cultivation, in line with demand, by regulating plant growth in the field based on these predictions.

Fujitsu will leverage the findings of this joint research in the Fujitsu Group's agriculture businesses, and together with an evaluation of effectiveness, it also aims to deliver new technologies as solutions to the agriculture industry. Kyushu University will offer education in smart agriculture, promoting dissemination of these results, together with human resource development.
