Executive Grow Summit
On Dec 8, 2021, Kenneth Tran - Koidra’s Founder - will present at the Grow Executive Summit in the session
The Path From Automation to Autonomy New forms of automation are transforming the greenhouse space. Are you prepared to move from manual to automated processes? Change is the next normal in the protected ag industry as technology introduces machine vision, AI, deep learning, wireless sensors, and more.

First GROW Executive Summit Engages Top-Level Leaders Across the Industry We launched the first GROW Executive Summit with a mind to gather forward-thinking executives across the controlled-environment sector. And the premier event was a success beyond what we anticipated-and we think big!
Abstract of the talk
In a world in which critical resources — water and energy, as well as time, money, and skilled labor — are becoming scarcer while food demand is increasing, it is critically important to explore new technologies to address these barriers. AIoT (AI meets IoT) holds a great promise to disrupt the greenhouse industry, enabling growers to move from intuition to a system of precision agriculture, from manual processes to automated solutions for better yield and resource usage efficiency. During this presentation, learn from Ken Tran at Koidra about how AI & IoT have been used to transform greenhouses and indoor farms, empowering the growers to make informed decisions to do more with less.
Then on Dec 14th, he will join the industry panel at the workshop “Physical Reasoning and Inductive Biases for the Real World”, part of NeurIPS international machine learning conference
Physical Reasoning and Inductive Biases for the Real World
Much progress has been made on end-to-end learning for physical understanding and reasoning. If successful, understanding and reasoning about the physical world promises far-reaching applications in robotics, machine vision, and the physical sciences. Despite this recent progress, our best artificial systems pale in comparison to the flexibility and generalization of human physical reasoning.
Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) is a multi-track machine learning and computational neuroscience conference that includes invited talks, demonstrations, symposia and oral and poster presentations of refereed papers. Following the conference, there are workshops which provide a less formal setting.
