(Yicai Global) Nov. 3 -- An 'agricultural brain,' China's first agricultural project using artificial intelligence which was developed by Shaanxi Lanhai Intelligent Technology Co., has officially entered operation in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei province, People's Daily reported on Nov. 3.
The project is a decision making system which will provide data support to the whole industry chain, the report added. The system's core uses the Internet of Things, cloud computing, AI and other technologies, said Zhang Lei, general manager. By placing sensors in every area of the industry, this 'brain' can systemically analyze soil and climate data to make reasonable, economical and efficient decisions.
Agricultural Brain can also transfer information to buyers and end consumers, who can immediately see the products they have ordered and brand information to ensure the safety and quality of food.
China's agricultural industry is facing such issues as uncompetitive products, a resource shortage and great pressure on environmental sustainability. The country is looking to upgrade the sector to compare to America's intelligent farming model, the report added.
