In this Market Perspective, IDC analyzes the current and future intersection of computer vision (CV) technologies and agriculture. In particular, this report provides background on the evolution of the agricultural and CV markets, identifies current and future CV-enabled use cases within agriculture, and establishes a maturity assessment score for each identified use case. In summary, IDC sees great potential for the application of CV tools and technology within agriculture."Computer vision has the power to revolutionize agriculture in ways we have only begun to realize. From seeing the unseeable to the automation of record keeping the potential of computer vision has barely been cracked for food production." says Dr. Aron Cory, Research Manager for IDC's Worldwide Agriculture program."The high rate of manual, repetitive processes found within the agricultural sector aligns nicely with the strengths of computer vision technologies," says Matt Arcaro, Research Director Computer Vision and AI technologies. "Although the potential is there, CV ecosystem providers will need to ensure that current and future solutions respect the unique nuances within agriculture."
