Artificial Intelligence in Agriculture

Ever thought AI could change the way the world produces its food? Did you know the agricultural sector is hungry for new technology? Do you like to put your programming skills into practice in a dynamic, young startup environment? Then read on...


Still in doubt? Feel free to send us a message so we can answer your questions!

VanBoven provides farmers and other agricultural companies with accurate harvest predictions of fresh vegetables, like lettuce, broccoli and cabbages. Our tech team develops algorithms to extract information from individual plants from drone imagery. Using this information we can predict the plant's ideal harvest date and volume.

During your internship you will help us develop smart computer vision algorithms capable of identifying and analyzing individual plants in drone imagery. Even though this is an internship, we want you to become a full member of the team. You will be involved in all technical meetings and discussions.

What will you be doing?

  • Identify weak spots in our existing software and suggest improvements.
  • Develop, train and test models using Mask R-CNN and YOLO for Object Detection and Segmentation.
  • Run (your) algorithms on data from actual customers and present them with results.
  • Join us on field-trips to learn about the challenges of harvest forecasting first hand.
