In their monthly podcast, querFeldein.blog is talking with experts from science, politics and practice about their ideas for the agriculture of the future. In their latest episode, Cyrill Stachniss is their guest on the future of robotics in agriculture. They are discussion questions on what role robotics will play in arable farming, or if drones together with autonomous machines will replace the work of humans in the fields.
PhenoRob’s Call for Applications for the International Summer School travelled the world. At the end of the deadline on June 15, we had received 100 applications from 30 countries. This is a remarkable success.
From Canada to Japan, Peru to Nepal, Finland to South Africa people are interested in Agricultural Robotics and so applied to attend the 5 day event, taking part online from August 24-28. Besides interesting workshops on the topic of Agricultural Robotics, there will be networking sessions and socializing events. People from all over the world will get together to exchange ideas on the topic, to interact and to make PhenoRob globally known. We are excited to see the international community of PhenoRob growing.
In April the global news agency Reuters published their list of the world’s 1000 most influential climate scientists. Frank Ewert is among the top 100.
The framework for identifying the most influential climate researchers goes back to an idea of the data journalist Maurice Tamman who created a list using a combination of three rankings. These are based on the number of publications on topics related to climate change, the number of their citations and the attention the researchers and their work have received in public policy papers, the lay press and through social media. Frank Ewert is one of the world’s top 100 climate influencers and among the top 10 in Germany.
