Based on the data from World Bank, almost 80% of the world’s poor live in rural areas and depend on agriculture for their living. The growing population also put the sector under pressure to inside the production to meet the consumer demands, and the call for the digital transformation in agriculture has been raised since years back.  The outbreak of Covid-19 had speed up the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligent (AI) and other technologies to reduce the dependencies to manpower, and at the same time, increase the yields of the crops.

The agriculture in Malaysia had seen a major transformation during this period, from traditional farming to smart farming, from soil farming to hydroponics, from rural area to urban farming, and from outdoor to indoor farming. Each of these showing different demands and requirement for the IoT system, even the fundamental of the technologies are the same.

Moving towards the Smart Farming, a new generation of farmers, would require different skillsets as compared to the conventional farmers. IoT engineers, agronomist, data scientist, cloud developer, technical farm manager and other roles becoming more and more important in coming futures.

This session will share the IoT for smart agriculture from different perspective, such as the views of different groups of peoples in this transformation, their expectation and the challenges faced; Different type of farming due to the limitation of resources such as lands and manpower; Components of the IoT system in Agriculture and how does it relate to the IoT system in other fields.
