Philly ETE 2022 — The Impact of Software in Agriculture — Gary Rudolph & Bryce Hemme

Tags: ,


Learn about the global impact that software and technology is having in agriculture to help farmers run stronger businesses and steward the land for generations to come by unlocking improvements in profitability, efficiency and sustainability that are only possible through software & data analytics.

In this talk we’ll cover the challenges faced by farmers and how technology is being applied to solve these challenges. Hear about how we use AWS Lambda, Step Functions and other serverless technologies to predict outcomes, optimize decision making, and perform analysis via massively parallel on demand compute pipelines.
