Empowering Extension Workers: AI-Enabled Tools for Farmer Engagement

Navigating AI implementation to bridge the agriculture knowledge gap

About the talk

In India, there are between 300,000 to 500,000 extension workers who play a crucial role in disseminating agricultural information to farmers. In this session, Vineet Singh will talk about how Digital Green is using AI to improve the cost-effectiveness of public extension systems with an AI assistant for front line extension workers. He will also delve into various challenges with AI implementation in this process and discuss strategies to mitigate them effectively.
