Food production and preparation have always been labor and capital intensive. Today, these traditional industries are rapidly moving beyond technology and tools to support humans and into the realm of compete automation. With the internet of things, low-cost sensors, cloud-computing ubiquity, and big data analysis, farmers and chefs are being replaced with connected, big data robots—not just in the field but also in the kitchens of our homes and restaurants.
Internet-connected systems can be built with just commodity sensors and open source software that gather millions of sensor readings, transport those readings into the cloud, and process that information in real time and with large-scale, batch machine-learning engines. From farming to food shipment and logistics to food prep and cooking, we can:
Tim Gasper explores the tech stack, data science techniques, and use cases driving this revolution. You’ll learn about some very cool next-generation use cases in food production and food prep, the big data and IoT architectures that support those use cases, and how to implement the software and data science techniques that drives these innovations.
