Autonomous greenhouse challenge

  • Dr. Silke Hemming
  • Wageningen University & Research

In the Autonomous Greenhouse Challenge organised by Wageningen University & Research and sponsored by Tencent and David Wallerstein (CXO Tencent), 5 international teams grow cucumbers in a real greenhouse compartment remotely with the use of artificial intelligence. They use different sensors and their own AI algorithms to reach the highest net profit with high sustainability. During 4 months the teams compete against each other and try beat the manual operated reference. Our tech partner LetsGrow.com facilitates the digital interface of teams and greenhouses. During the AgroFoodTech the winner of the challenge will be chosen and will present his approach.
