During the last year many events have placed the focus on the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region. For example, the GFIA conducted on November 23 and 24 had the MENA region among its main topics. However, this country is also capturing the interest of companies that want to improve it, and Farmin.ai is one of them.
Let’s take a look at this Emirati-based tech company together.
Farmin.ai was born after winning the Geotech Innovation Program, an initiative from the UAE Space Agency and Krypto Labs to make start-ups grow faster launched in 2019. Geotech Innovation Program worked as follow:
Three winning startups get AED 100,000 in cash and additional AED 500,000 to grow their project and ideas, making them a full marketable service. Specifically, the proposed application had to provide efficient solutions in Urban and Rural Land Management, Disaster and Crisis Management or Coastal Border Security sector.
The company’s purpose is to improve the entire agricultural system by spreading the power of artificial intelligence to nature reserves and various other applications.
All this, of course, has one main goal: to cut costs by accelerating the digitization process. According to the Farmin.ai team, this should take about 3-5 years. During this time frame, they will build the most robust geo-spatial monitoring platform in the MENA region, improving productivity across every field.
Every algorithm is designed specifically for the MENA region, so that the systems can recognize fields seamlessly. Anyone can get an AI-powered solutions that matches any needs.
How it works
The artificial intelligence used by Farmin.ai is able to analyze and classify even the smallest change. This is possible thanks to satellite imagery, which provides high-resolution images for the AI system. Of course, HD cameras are used to achieve real-time monitoring of the field, leveraging sensors and actuators to control everything remotely.
First, data is collected from satellites, cameras, and IoT sensors. Then, AI recognizes the spectrum data, reporting changes, analysis, statistics and recommendations. Knowing all this reduces costs and wasted money by providing continuous monitoring.
Last but not least, an AI system like Farmin.ai can be used not only in the field of agriculture, but also for urban planning and the maritime sector. Having all these sensors, monitoring a coastal area for anomalies and suspicious activities is really convenient.
Companies like Farmin.ai are clearly useful not only for the MENA region, but also for every other Country that wants to improve in agriculture, maritime and urban planning field. Having the chance to take advantage of Hi-Tech systems can help to minimize costs and help the planet.
