AI startup to help teach its tractors how to farm

John Deere is purchasing Blue River Technology, a Californian startup that makes machine learning tools for agriculture. Blue River’s key technology is called “see and spray.” It’s a set of cameras that fix onto crop sprayers and use deep learning to identify plants. If it sees a weed, it’ll hit it with pesticide; if it sees a crop, it’ll drop some fertilizer.
