Agricultural autonomy and new ways of working

  • Weeding and tilling are great examples of jobs that are very amenable to autonomous operation
  • Harvest, especially in large-scale agriculture, still looms as an enormous challenge for autonomous operation
  • There is a wide range of tasks from spreading to planting that sit on a scale from plausible to challenging

Autonomy won’t be just one thing

  • style of autonomy: non-autonomous, augmented-autonomy and native-autonomy
  • ways of working: what new and existing pathways are created for achieving outcomes
  • jobs to be done: the set of tasks that make up agricultural production that is mechanized and automated

Each autonomy style enables ways of working and leads to jobs to be done

Some jobs will be done in totally new ways
