NARO and BANDAI NAMCO Research Inc. developed Smart-Breeding Evaluation Method Using Drones and AI.

The National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO), in collaboration with BANDAI NAMCO Research Inc., has developed a grass breeding evaluation method using drones and artificial intelligence (AI) deep-learning, that can act as a substitute for breeders. Until now, breeders have had to visit the field directly and evaluate the characteristics of grass manually using a process which can take upwards of 2 hours. With this technology, an AI can perform the same evaluation using images taken from drones in approximately 5 mins.
