NDEMO: Amazon is changing how we buy food, and Africa stands to

NDEMO: Amazon is changing how we buy food, and Africa stands to | Information Cyber Corps | Scoop.it

Amazon is disrupting again. This time, it is shaking up grocery shopping. Its purchase of Whole Foods in the United States of America may seem far away from Africa but it has great implications for us. Amazon is likely building a mega supply chain platform that will disrupt other sectors further and before long, its variants will be all over the world. Amazon, like every giant technology company, is taking advantage of three technologies: Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to solve big problems.

Jeff Makana's insight:

According to Sygenta a reputable fortune 500 Swiss Corporation


A group of maize farmers stands huddled around an agronomist and his computer on the side of an irrigation pivot in central South Africa.


The agronomist has just flown over the pivot with a hybrid UAV that takes off and lands using propellers yet maintains distance and speed for scanning vast hectares of land through the use of its fixed wings.


The UAV is fitted with a four spectral band precision sensor that conducts onboard processing immediately after the flight, allowing farmers and field staff to address, almost immediately, any crop anomalies that the sensor may have recorded, making the data collection truly real-time.


In this instance, the farmers and agronomist are looking to specialized software to give them an accurate plant population count. It’s been 10 days since the maize emerged and the farmer wants to determine if there are any parts of the field that require replanting due to a lack of emergence or wind damage, which can be severe in the early stages of the summer rainy season.
