Abstract

The importance of sustainable and efficient food production has driven the need for applying increasingly advanced approaches in farming and agriculture. To keep up with this need, farmers and future farmers need to be trained in the ways of precision agriculture. With the widespread use of artificial intelligence across all industries, it is not surprising to find AI at the heart of precision agriculture. While AI has brought a lot of promise, it has also brought a lot of dread, due to the lack of understanding about what it is and what it can do. To help farmers buy into applying AI, a new educational program is needed. To this end, we have developed a simple active learning system to illustrate AI, particularly, machine learning. We present an overview of the system and discuss how it can contribute to future farmers' understanding of how AI works.
