The AgAID Institute hopes to apply AI to many areas of agriculture amid the anthropogenically changed climate. This will include a search for AI solutions to everything from the dangers of increasing temperatures on crops to climate’s impact on farm labor.
New investments support agricultural scientists taking a closer look at what artificial intelligence can offer.

USDA-NIFA and other agencies and organizations have partnered with NSF to pursue transformational advances in a range of economic sectors and science and engineering fields — from food system security to next-generation edge networks.
Washington State University will lead a multi-institutional research institute to develop artificial intelligence (AI) solutions to tackle some of agriculture’s biggest challenges related to labor, water, weather and climate change.
