Artemis Project

Imaging technology for a food secure future

The Alliance has launched a new Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation-supported project, Artemis, with Mineral to deliver mobile phone-based computer vision and AI solutions for researchers, on-farm trail managers and smallholder farmers. The vision is to enable anyone, anywhere to collect accurate agricultural ground truth data to train and inform AI models for improving breeding, agronomic recommendations and varietal placement. This would be made possible through development of a training-free, protocol-free app for anyone to collect the right imagery to provide accurate crop measurement (powered by Mineral AI).

Artemis builds off the Alliance's previous collaborations with Mineral in imaging technology. Watch this video to learn about the rover we deployed in Colombia.
