ListenField Research Partnership with the Alliance on AI for Disease Analysis

ListenField is Gratified to Announce Our Research Partnership with The Alliance of Bioversity International and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (Alliance)

The research teams of the Alliance and ListenField have committed to conduct research and development on artificial intelligence (AI) for disease analysis in cassava, banana, and other tropical crops. This important partnership will be key to providing farmers and agribusinesses with precision farming solutions, which will be delivered through a formal collaborative agreement signed earlier this year between the two organizations.

What to look forward to in this partnership?

The Alliance and ListenField share a common goal in providing novel AI models to help farmers produce better quality crops and reduce loss from disease. This partnership between the Alliance and ListenField will draw upon the strength of advanced research and development capabilities of both organizations — ListenField will contribute on the multispectral and hyperspectral analysis front whereas Alliance will draw on its strength on disease analysis models for several key crops in the Asian region.

Our common desire to enter into a strategic partnership stems from the Alliance’s and ListenField’s commitment to promoting smart agriculture by various avenues, namely, exchanging knowledge and data and establishing services on our platforms, for the purpose of improving productivity, increasing efficiency of the farm operation, as well as reducing risks from weather, pest and disease.
