AI for All

FREE Agronomist level lifetime diagnostics for all farmers globally

$ 1 Phone Magnifier

for assessing pests, plant disease and produce quality


Partners

The only way we can deliver such an ambitious scheme is through active partnerships with those who share our mission

Research / University Partners:

We are collaborating with a wide range of research partners and ag experts to build and validate our AI Engines. We will also work with them on different produce types and different regions to ensure that we can deliver valuable diagnostics to farmers in their regions.

Ag Industry Partners:

We will be working with a select number of industry partners who are interested in working with us. They will be provided a beta version of the devices at a cost well before the launch so that they can start testing it and creating useful AI apps.

NGO’s, Out Reach Programs, and Departments of Agriculture

We are seeking partnerships with organisations that would like to take put our detection technology in the hands of subsistence farmers.


AI Training


We are keen to train as many students, researchers, and agronomist on AI


Online Session: How to build AI Engines

We offer free one hour hands-on AI training sessions for those who wish to part with us. No previous AI experience is required. At the end of this session, participants will have a basic understanding of building an AI Engine for the detection of pests and plant disease

AI Engines for deployment

After the training sessions, we will agree on building AI engines for a specific pest or plant disease. We will then make this available in our app for others to use.

Sessions for Universities

20 students can participate in our sessions at a time. We will have a Q&A session at the end of it. Universities need to buy a trial pack of 10 magnifiers to participate. The sessions are free.

Participation


We welcome the participation of all those who wish to support this project, who want to help solve real problems affecting subsistence farmers

Verified Images

We need expert verified images of insects and plant disease to build AI Engines. These images need to be taken using GoMicro. We are able to provide up to 3 GoMicro devices at no cost, but shipping has to be paid. We need 50 images of target and 50 images of target-lookalikes for training our AI engines. Once it is trained you can test it out using our app.

Beta Testing

Once the engines are built we would like to test it out with smallholder farmers who have rudimentary smartphones. We look forward to working with Ag Extension organisations on this.

Validation

We look forward to working with researchers who are able to validate the accuracy of our detection engines. Typically we achieve around ~80% accuracy with just 50 images

Online Training

We provide online training on “How to build an AI Engine” for all our partners. Through this, they get to build and test their own AI Engines.
