Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The swift hike in global population and urbanization has diversified consumption habits and created a need for the adoption of smart technologies beyond traditional farming. The endorsement of computer vision and deep learning has automated the traditional process of farming and coined the term ‘smart agriculture’, the smart connected agricultural technologies embedded with AI, machine learning, and IoT having transformed the scenario of agriculture in a prominent way. The brisk advancement in video surveillance systems automated by AI has enabled the protection of fields from animal breaches, and the merger of IoT with artificial intelligence has improved the prediction analysis of crop yield by capturing data using real-time sensors and aerial imaging with the use of drones.

Infrared cameras capture data through drones and combine them with sensors installed on the ground for the competent prediction and identification of pest infection and control; thus, making it clear that artificial intelligence promotes better decision making and precision agriculture powered by AI, forthcoming as the next big development in the field of agriculture, at the same time paving the way for the third green revolution through smart farming and IoT-driven agriculture. The pandemic has accelerated traceability adoption across all agricultural supply chains in 2020, and will continue to drive its adoption. The inventory shrinkage can be controlled by a well-managed track-and-trace system providing a greater visibility and control across supply chains powered by artificial intelligence, with the optimization and application of biodegradable pesticides only to affected fields being one of the prominent AI applications having significantly reduced costs.

This Special Issue invites individuals to submit original quality work regarding the domain of emerging technologies transforming traditional agriculture, and urges to highlight the important sub-disciplines within, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Expert systems in agriculture;
  • Smart agriculture and precision farming with AI;
  • Crop yield prediction using IOT and AI;
  • Precision irrigation and waste reduction;
  • Livestock tracking with machine learning;
  • Supply chain optimization with AI and IOT;
  • Tailor-made IOT devices and solution;
  • Crop health monitoring and smart spraying;
  • Optimal mixing of pesticides using supervised learning;
  • Optimization of irrigation system with AI;
  • AI-powered fertilizer recommendation system;
  • Soil monitoring and management with AI.

As the most popular technologies of the 21st century, artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT) are the most effective paradigms that have played a vital role in transforming the agricultural industry during the pandemic. The convergence of AI and IoT has sparked a recent wave of interest in artificial intelligence of things (AIoT). An IoT system provides data flow to AI techniques for data integration and interpretation as well as for the performance of automatic image analysis and data prediction. The adoption of AIoT technology significantly transforms the traditional agriculture scenario by addressing numerous challenges, including pest management and post-harvest management issues. Although AIoT is an essential driving force for smart agriculture, there are still some barriers that must be overcome. In this paper, a systematic literature review of AIoT is presented to highlight the current progress, its applications, and its advantages. The AIoT concept, from smart devices in IoT systems to the adoption of AI techniques, is discussed. The increasing trend in article publication regarding to AIoT topics is presented based on a database search process. Lastly, the challenges to the adoption of AIoT technology in modern agriculture are also discussed. Full article
