panel discussion
To what extent can agricultural production be mechanized?

Within the 9th Annual Conference of the Association of Hyperdisciplinarity, March 6-7, 2020 (Friday and Saturday), hosted by Liverness, a panel discussion entitled "TheTo what extent can agricultural production be mechanized?The "MARUHAN" will be held in the following location.

The 9th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/conference/hic2020/

 Not only is the term "smart agriculture" becoming more widely used, but IoT and AI practices are being implemented in the agricultural field. In addition, robot farm machines have been introduced to the market, and mechanization of agriculture is expected to further advance in the future. As the population of farmers native to IoT and other technologies grows, how far will agriculture mechanize? Through discussions among smart farming ventures and researchers who are developing technologies, we will consider the extent to which agriculture can be mechanized when the population of farmers native to IoT and other technologies increases, and what kind of field usage is possible as mechanization progresses.


We will have a program of discussions among researchers, start-ups, and large companies from a variety of perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
Audience members are invited to attend the conference. Please visit the conference website (see below).

Associate Professor, Department of Environmental Agriculture, Graduate School of Agricultural Science, Kyushu University
Takashi Okayasu, Ph.
His research interests include the measurement of field environments using information and communication technology (ICT), plant phenotyping technology that automatically extracts growth characteristics such as plant shape and size under various growing conditions, smart agriculture that contributes to the sustainable development of agriculture in Japan, and the creation of new mechanisms that connect farmers and consumers and enable them to share the value and necessity of agriculture. We are also conducting research on smart agriculture, which contributes to the sustainability of Japan's agriculture. He is currently involved in several research projects with the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF), other ministries, and companies.
