Zenvus’ AI-Cameras for Farmers [photos]

We searched for digital cameras in the world but none gave us the capabilities to process crop vegetation index the way we would have liked cost-competitively. I have wanted a camera that is intelligent, smart and engineered for farmers. So, the only option is to make a digital camera from scratch, building at system level with a mammoth microprocessor at the heart. In the processor, we have implemented some amazing algorithms which can help you detect nutrient deficiency, crop diseases, onset of pests, etc in crops even beyond what any human eye can do. And the most exciting aspect: we got the cost 5x lower.

To make this happen, I returned to my root of computational biology where in the Johns Hopkins University, I mastered how to learn from Nature to create biomorphic and neuromorphic systems. Yes, emulating biology to make systems smarter and better. Our algorithms in this camera are advanced.

Our main customer is from Peru which not only funded it but has dropped some change. I hope to make this available in Africa. Imagine the ability to detect crop diseases weeks before they occur. That is what we are working and we are bringing AI into agriculture, at scale.
