In recent years, research and development has been aggressively pursued by large corporations, venture companies, and researchers to realize agriculture using robots, IoT, and data. There have been an increasing number of efforts to develop demonstrations in actual agricultural fields in a wide range of fields, including paddy rice, open field vegetables, and facility cultivation. In this session, we will focus on fruit trees in particular, and discuss the next step forward with three researchers who have demonstrated sensing technologies essential for data utilization. Together, we will recruit colleagues who will work together to create the agriculture of the future. 

We have prepared a program of discussions among researchers, venture companies, and large corporations from various perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session. We are looking for audience members, so please join us. Please visit the conference website (see below).
