Machine Intelligence in Agriculture and Earth Observation

We explore how Machine Intelligence, drones, and satellites are the key to helping the world feed it's ever-growing population; and some of the unique applications and challenges of applying machine intelligence to agriculture.

Motivated in part by a love for food, and in part by the desire to make a positive impact on the world, Yuan left behind the world of high-performance electric and hybrid vehicles, to co-found Mavrx, specializing in the analysis of imagery collected by an extensive network of drones, manned aircraft, and satellite data suppliers to help farmers manage their fields more economically while using fewer chemicals. Yuan holds a masters in Engineering Science from the University of Oxford, and started a PhD in Switched Reluctance motors before getting distracted by the drones he was building in his spare time.
