How you and your phone camera can protect farmers from pests.
One insect can change everything.
If the Khapra Beetle entered Australia, it could cost $15.5 billion over 20 years.
The threat is growing, with the spread of the Q Fly and entrance of the Fall Armyworm just two recent examples.
These insects are an existential threat for farmers.
Working together, we can stop Khapra Beetle, stop Q Fly and stop Grain Borers.
A picture of an insect can be captured on your smart phone.
Take a photo of a bug using a mobile phone and use Dex Vision's app, FarmArmour, to identify the insect.
It's like having the brain of an expert in the palm of your hand.
Dex Vision has used AI to develop image recognition (computer vision) for bugs and pest insects.
There has been growing momentum in computer vision with apps and technology becoming more advanced than ever before.
This, when combined with big data, allows us to achieve unprecedented results that make a difference in the real world.
