This week, over 200 attendees from across the globe tuned in to the “Seeds of Our Future: The Flight of the Honeybees” virtual agtech conference. The two-day event, which was co-hosted Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology Director Dennis Donohue and Silicon Valley Forum Executive Director Denyse Cardozo, provided an overview of the declining pollinator population and discussed how to leverage technology such as artificial intelligence, internet of things and big data to solve the problem and hopefully reverse the trend.
