Precision agriculture will be necessary to support demand for food

According to data provided by Beecham Research, the world population is estimated to hit 9.6 billion people, the majority of whom will be living in cities, by 2050; to support a population of that size, food production will have to increase by 70%.  In a new report titled Towards Smart Farming: Agriculture Embracing the IoT Vision, Beecham found the key to support the projected demand for food resources is the advancement of precision farming enabled with the smart connectivity supported by the Internet of Things (IoT).

Therese Cory, a senior analyst at Beecham, said, “The demand for more food has to be set against the challenges of climate change, more extreme weather conditions and the environmental impact of intensive farming practices.”   Citing research by the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), the reports suggests, “In order to counter these challenges, the FAO recommends that all farming sectors should be equipped with innovative tools and techniques, particularly digital technologies. Precision agriculture aims to optimize yield per unit of farming land by using the most modern means in a continuously sustainable way, to achieve best in terms of quality, quantity and financial return.” Internet of Things use cases for precision agriculture include fleet management of farm vehicles; arable farming; livestock monitoring; indoor farming; fish farming; forestry; and storage monitoring.   In the U.S., some segments of the wireless industry have already recognized the revenue opportunity associated with telecom-powered precision farming.. AT&T, through its industrial IoT unit, has partnered with the agriculture machinery manufacturer John Deere to install a wireless modem in every piece of machinery produced. AT&T is also working to help reduce grain spoilage and improve yields through sensor systems.  Sensors are one of six components of smart farming laid out in the Beecham report. The others are data analytics; hardware and software; telematics, position tech; communications system like cellular; and software applications.  The Internet of Things and Agriculture are in many ways a perfect match for each other. IoT sensors allow farmers to track crop yields, soil nutrition and rainfall, with a previously unheard of level of precision.

Self sustainability is key to any civilization. GMO is not the answer because its not natural.  GMO corn spikes higher sugars in diabetics apposed to  organic. True, why would the government let GMO or the FDA allow this to occur? As much as a hassle as it is to plant and grow  our own plants using a rubber tire as a way to grow our veggies and other items is a water saving way to grow produce. I grew 5 green pepper plants a variety of different colors in one tire which is still sustained and giving fruit. Just a few plants can feed a family and researching winter planting solutions will ahead of time will prepare us for the winter. Start a Garden its a good thing.

is move appears to have been catalysed, in part, by the ham-fisted opposition to HTTP2/SPDY by the ironically-named "Open Web Alliance" set up by various (mostly US) telcos and vendors as part of ATIS. This group came up with the risible notion of "trusted proxies" which did not just allow useful traffic-management, but started with the premise of allowing ISPs free rein to break encrypted streams for a variety of use-cases, including ad-insertion, big-data collection, application discrimination and various other questionable practices.

In other words, the Internet is not just neutralising a specific example of "damage", but it's trying to ensure that those that attempted to damage it are de-fanged for the future as well.

How Ericsson Plans To Be An IoT Powerhouse

G Nuno Monteiro's insight:

The rapid evolution of the Internet of things (IoT) domain is likely to provide the next wave of growth for network infrastructure companies such as Ericsson andNokia. In fact, Ericsson is aiming to become a leader in the market, investing heavily in the development of technologies for 5G, which is expected to trigger a widespread adoption of IoT. The company believes that 5G network will play a key role in enabling IoT communication and connectivity across markets. In addition to pushing 5G, Ericsson is striving for the development of cost- and power-efficient IoT devices, applications and software, working closely with several ecosystem companies. Ericsson has even collaborated with Nokia andIntel for the development and roll-out of NB-LTE (narrow-band LTE), which can help it square off against Chinese rival Huawei.

Ericsson, which is involved in almost all stages of IoT transformation, has its eyes set on Asia, which is a big potential market for IoT deployment. The number of connected devices in Asia is already huge, and it is set for further growth going forward with the improvement in network infrastructure. Ericsson sees Thailand as an important market in the region, and it is urging regulators to allocate more spectrum to operators in order to accelerate the expansion of 5G and IoT.

Most organizations have realized both the potentials and the difficulties of Big Data.

 

Here is a TDWI checklist report that can help to get organized before beginning a new project:

1. Identify key business drivers

2. Create an effective team

3. Emphasize communication skills

4. Embrace visualization and storytelling

5. Access all the data

6. Operationalize Analytics

7. Improve governance

 

The 3 elements that I particularly consider crucial are:

A. Set clear goals

B. Invest on the team, not on individuals

C. Communicate and operationalize your project findings
