What's it all about?

Join us as we share stories from the field and learn how computer vision and machine learning is transforming the agricultural sector. 

In this session: Learn how to leverage technologies to monitor livestock, crops, and pests, improve worker safety conditions and accelerate R&D for a profitable and sustainable future.

We will include an architectural overview of AWS’ edge service ecosystem and a live demo using Amazon Sagemaker and Jetson Nano for Machine Vision at the edge for an agritech use case.

By the end of the presentation attendees should have what they need to setup a Jetson device for edge Machine Vision using a custom trained machine learning model, and understand how that model is situated within the larger AWS Edge architecture.
