In September 2021, WSU began leadership of a new Agriculture-Artificial Intelligence (AI) research Institute: the AgAID Institute. As the growing population increases food demand, agriculture faces complex challenges related to labor, water scarcity, weather events and climate change. The AgAID Institute is developing AI solutions to help address these pressing challenges and spur the next agricultural revolution with the use of AI. We’re building tools and workflows to help mitigate the effects of labor costs and shortages, and to better manage regional resources such as water, despite climate uncertainties. The Institute will bring more data and science- guided information to the fingertips of agricultural workers to help them make better decisions.
