8. Decision Agriculture: Using the Right Data at the Right Time to Make the Right Decisions w/ Anthony Lackore

Look out your front window. Does your lawn need watered? How do you know? Because you can look out, see the state of your lawn, and decide if it’s had too much water, too little water, or just enough. Too little water and your lawn becomes brown, dry, brittle, and lifeless. Too much and it becomes muddy, soggy, and grows things like moss. So you use your eye and intuition to decide when and how much to water. But what if you’re watering not a lawn, but millions of acres of seed fields, like Anthony Lackore and his team at Corteva? We sat down with Anthony recently and he gave us some incredible insight on: Agricultural Technology The progression of decision agronomy The role of technology in agricultural production You can find this interview, and many more by subscribing to the Seeking Surfboards Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or on Our Website.

6. Groundhog Day for Business: How Decision Intelligence Solves Problems as They Happen with AI and Machine Learning w/ Karl Hampson

Decisions, decisions. Every day, we make an untold number of choices. Some of them are probably very important, but most of them are minor, more routine decisions. What if we didn’t have to spend our energy on those little decisions? What if those decisions could be made for us, so we could focus our attention on the most impactful and important decisions we have to make? Those “what if’s” are what’s driving the vision for “decision intelligence”. On this episode of Seeking Surfboards, Karl Hampson, Director of Artificial Intelligence at Solstice, came on the show to talk about all things decision intelligence. He answers these important questions: What is it? How does it differ from the augmented intelligence we interact with as consumers? How can augmented intelligence benefit your organization?
