A brief history of the famous 1969 Margaret Hamilton photo featuring the Apollo software she and her team developed for NASA, sending humans to the moon. Article includes rarely-seen outtakes of Hamilton and her code from the MIT Museum.
FarmBot is humanity's open-source automated precision farming machine. Picture FarmBots as giant 3D printers, but instead of extruding plastic, its tools are seed injectors, watering nozzles, sensors, and more. FarmBot technology exhibits the following key features:
CNC XYZ Movement: Using an Arduino and Raspberry Pi, the FarmBot tool head can be precisely positioned for a variety of operations such as soil preparation, seeding, watering, fertilizing, weed control, and data acquisition.Complete Control: Farm or garden layouts are designed with a drag and drop web-based interface allowing complete customization from any device. Operations are auto-scheduled ensuring your plants never miss a day of watering.Fully Optimized: A decision support system automatically adjusts water, fertilizer, and pesticide regimens; seed spacing, timing, and more based on soil and weather conditions; sensor data, location, and time of year.Dozens of Applications: From small raised beds, to retrofitted greenhouses, to urban rooftops, to commercial and industrial applications; FarmBot is scalable and modular to work in any situation.Best of all, everything is free and open-source.
Our Vision is to create an open and accessible technology aiding everyone to grow food and to grow food for everyone. Our Mission is to grow a community that produces free and open-source hardware plans, software, data, and documentation enabling everyone to build and operate a farming machine.
David Baeza believes that by 2050 we'll need to double world food production. The problem is, farmland per capita will be reduced by more than 50%. One promising solution is using drones to help improve crop yields while reducing dependencies on water, pesticides and weedicides. Today's talk will focus on wine and wine grapes but the learnings from this crop can have global implications on the food supply during the next 5 years and could also play a major role in helping to save the honey bee. If you love wine, want to help save the honey bee, and are fascinated by drones, this enlightening and fun talk is for you.

Esto es una realidad, nuestro grupo apunta a esto para la realidad en Perú, donde las particularidades de costa, sierra y selva exige que estudiemos los sistemas para los cultivos tanto de agroexportación como de seguridad alimentaria.
There are some tasks to which robots and AI are far inferior to humans. We focus on these skills because they separate us from the machines. And when a computer masters one of them, it amazes. But other tasks are, frankly, suited perfectly for machines.

If you've played around with electronic circuits, you probably know the 555 timer integrated circuit, said to be the world's best-selling integrated circuit with billions sold. Designed by analog IC wizard Hans Camenzind in 1970, the 555 has been called one of the greatest chips of all time with whole books devoted to 555 timer circuits.
The Food Computer is a controlled-environment agriculture technology platform that uses robotic systems to control and monitor climate, energy, and plant growth inside of a specialized growing chamber.
Columbia Engineering researchers have, for the first time, harnessed the molecular machinery of living systems to power an integrated circuit from adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of life.
