A key component of the evolving AI capabilities is the development and use of advanced machine learning and neural networks across different domains.

This session will describe the steps necessary to set up and run an AI application using contemporary machine learning tools for agricultural and water systems. 

A recent application for water systems in the D.C. area will serve as an example. 

It will also explore the current competitive rush for many companies and supply chain producers to offer AI services and embed generative AI tools in their products.
