Blue River is the Silicon Valley-based machine learning startup acquired by Deere back in 2017, which has provided the foundation of the multinational giant’s foray into artificial intelligence, with their expertise in computer vision, in particular, proving itself an incredibly valuable asset.
Another crucial part of Deere’s strategy to remain on the vanguard of AI and agriculture is its JD Labs ‘start-up collaborator.'”
