Artificial intelligence impact in Horticulture?

Recently, Demis Hassibis, Google DeepMind's CEO, predicted that artificial intelligence will reach human-level intelligence in a few years. The question arises: to what extent can automation replace humans in various operations?

Technology is evolving at an unprecedented rate, that's no secret. What does this mean for your organization now? What are the limits of automation? How does this affect your employees? My belief is that as human beings we are and will remain indispensable. We are the only ones capable of taking responsibility for our work, our families, our country, and our planet. It is not whether there is still room for us humans, but what place we have in this changing world.

Increasing productivity with AI

Despite developments such as Chat-GPT and GPT-4, I do not believe that digital transformation will pose a direct threat to humans in the near future. As humans, it is also an opportunity to make a greater impact. Artificial intelligence provides insights we cannot generate ourselves, it can help us make better decisions at an earlier stage, and it can make us aware of the consequences of our choices. Digitalization actually gives us increasing responsibility while taking over more and more of our tasks. Paradoxical, isn't it?

Redefining Responsibility

Essentially, responsibility refers to what result is expected of you; you are responsible for delivering quality products, reducing costs, reducing your carbon footprint, etc. However, how you achieve this result is subject to change. Whenever new opportunities arise for improving results, it is our responsibility to take advantage of them. This must be used in some way!

Now you are probably thinking; that may be true, but how? I don't have a ready answer. But I do have a few pointers to get you started. The first step is to evaluate whether you are really taking advantage of the opportunities available to you. Are you really interested in making steps, or are you content with the way things are? Despite the fear of the unknown, start taking advantage of opportunities and therefore take responsibility, despite the unknown.

Cultivating a Culture of Change

Once you figure this out, you can start thinking about the next step: starting the conversation. Is this vision shared by management? Is there a mentality I expect from my employees? Which result would I like to improve first? Brainstorm with your suppliers and other experts. Ensure that people from all levels of the organization are involved. They may be the most reluctant to change, but they are also the ones who can tell you what should be improved! You'll be amazed at what this small step unleashes.
