IBM Researchers Receive Aegis Graham Bell Award for Work in Digital Agriculture

The earth’s population is 7.6 billion and will rise to 11 billion by the turn of the century. Somehow, we must feed this 45 percent larger population with 10-20 percent less farmable land, and far less farmers. At the same time, a significant fraction of land and productive crop yield will be converted into bioenergy […]
