Our global thought leadership
1️⃣ Koidra has won the autonomous greenhouse challenges, back to back. Each time, we outperformed the reference expert growers, who outperformed every other team.
How a former Microsoft researcher used AI to grow award-winning lettuce from 5,000 miles away
It's pretty impressive to grow award-winning lettuce in a greenhouse competition against 42 teams from nearly two dozens countries. It's even more remarkable when you do it from 5,000 miles away. Koidra, a Seattle-based "AI of things" startup, this summer won the international Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge - its second time claiming the title.
2️⃣ Koidra is the only startup in its category that has received U.S. federal as well as Canadian provincial research grants, collaborating with the top scientists for Controlled Environment Agriculture in North America.
