Agriculture has been the backbone of human civilization for thousands of years. As the world population continues to grow, from the current 7.6 billion to 8.6 billion in 2030 and 9.8 billion in 2050, the demand for food and resources is rapidly increasing. This demand poses significant challenges to the agriculture sector, which must produce more food with limited resources, while also addressing the challenges of climate change and environmental sustainability. In response, there has been a growing movement towards smarter, more sustainable, and self-sufficient agriculture practices, utilizing new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Remote sensing and Geographical information systems (RSGIS), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine learning (ML), etc., to improve yields and reduce waste. This summer training program will orient students (undergraduate and graduate), from any background, on viable and efficient strategies for sustainable agriculture through smart and precision farming practices, and the application of cutting-edge technologies and IoT in agricultural sector. The student participants, majoring on or with keen interest in the intersection of ICT, digital transformation, business, and agriculture across the globe, will have ample opportunities to listen and interact with experts from the technology field as well as experts who are applying those technologies in agricultural sector. Lessons learned from demonstrations/field practices and real-world application of technologies will be a vital part of this summer training program. Besides technical input sessions and hands-on training, the summer program will expose the students to the international and multicultural learning and knowledge exchange system at AIT, and to the culture and practices in Thailand. The program will be held in Thailand and coordinated by AIT Extension of Asian Institute of Technology (AIT).
