A step forward in the age of artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) has come a long way, especially in recent times. In the past five years, adoption of AI-driven technology has significantly increased among the world’s enterprises, leading to smarter machines and a validation of AI’s role in these organizations. As more businesses adopt AI, it becomes more important as a potentiator of human talent. Businesses also gain increasing access to unparalleled levels of innovation.

In this infographic, you’ll get a glimpse into how Microsoft-powered AI features have been making businesses around the world smarter and more efficient.

Increase yields with smart, solar-powered farming solutions. Learn more about Microsoft Azure AI.

Optimizing resources is a top priority in the farming industry. As farmable land gets more utilized and population increases, the need to do more with less becomes a crucial competitive advantage. Luckily, today’s farmers have various digital tools at their disposal such as automation, machine learning, and artificial intelligence that allow them to increase yields while lowering their water and electricity consumptions levels.

Subscribe now to learn how independent farmers around the world are leveraging Microsoft technology powered by solar energy to increase and stabilize their income, and how you, too, can get started with Azure AI.

Empowering independence for farmers

Modern technology has enabled farmers to obtain impressive yields that sustain entire populations while allowing them to become as efficient as possible with their available resources. However, most of this technology is dependent upon stable electrical grids, large-scale aqueducts, and a steady fuel supply, all of which are not readily available to millions of farmers around the world.

One of these farmers is Monica, who depended on a water well located on her property as her only water source to sustain both her farm and her family. To make matters worse, climate change made rain increasingly scarce in her region of Kenya, Africa, which further decreased her available water supply and forced her to work harder just to maintain her current yields. Thankfully, just as things seemed impossible, digital transformation provided her with the solution she needed to secure a better future.

In this video, you’ll learn about Monica’s story and how, thanks to solar-powered Microsoft technology, she was able to automate her entire irrigation system, gain access to accurate weather forecasts, and obtain more income year round.

Forget the ROI: With artificial intelligence, decision-making will never be the same

The benefits of AI are undeniable, yet the technology itself is still not widely seen as a surefire investment by a large percentage of today’s decision makers. As a matter of fact, a recent study revealed that only 40 percent out of 1,500 executives have stated that they’re currently executing one AI initiative, or are in the process of doing so. There are multiple reasons for this— among them, a shortage of AI professionals, plus challenges when calculating profitability —but the real silver lining is that the fight for greater inclusion of AI-driven projects starts by bringing solid arguments to the boardroom.

In this article, you’ll read about four evidence-based and time-proven cases you can use to push forward the execution of your artificial intelligence initiatives.

SunCulture: Helping to weather the dry seasons

Sometimes, having access to the right data at the right time can enable life-saving decisions. If you don’t believe so, just ask Monica, a Kenyan farmer who has to leverage water from a well in her back yard to irrigate her crops as well as provide her family with drinkable water. Due to climate change, rainy seasons have become more and more scarce, forcing her to carefully manage her water output depending on the weather patterns in her region.

Watch this video to learn how solar-powered digital transformation and Microsoft Azure are empowering farmers like Monica with easily accessible, accurate data that allows them to effectively predict rainfall, control their irrigation systems, and increase yields.

When it comes to artificial intelligence, throw away that tired old tech rulebook

Emerging technologies always demand new approaches to risks and opportunities. They often force us to rethink and modify our existing methodologies in favor of more integrated and interconnected processes.

In this regard, artificial intelligence is definitely no exception. However, there’s still a lot of mysticism around what implications AI might have for today’s businesses and what measures organizations must take to ensure the successful execution of their AI initiatives.

In this article, you’ll learn about four ways in which ways AI is poised to turn the enterprise landscape on its head and how your business can better prepare for its ventures into artificial intelligence.
