Agdhi, a Bengaluru based agritech start-up, Wednesday joined NVIDIA Inception, a programme designed to nurture start-ups revolutionising industries with advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and data sciences.
Agdhi has introduced AI-based technology to check quality of seeds. The traditional method of detecting seed defects typically relies on manual inspection, which monopolises resources and is subjective. AI vision technology — along with photometry, radiometry and computer vision — offers efficient methods for seed classification and seed quality analysis.
NVIDIA Inception will allow Agdhi to grow its business with go-to-market support, training and technology assistance. The programme will offer an opportunity to collaborate with industry-leading experts and other AI-driven organisations.
Commenting on joining NVIDIA Inception, Nikhil Das, Founder, Agdhi said, “We are excited to be part of NVIDIA Inception and share the same belief that AI will play a key role in modernising agricultural activities. NVIDIA’s support, expertise, and technology will further accelerate our business, and we hope to realise the goal of doubling the farmers’ income by 2022.”
NVIDIA Inception is a programme that helps start-ups during critical stages of product development, prototyping and deployment. Every NVIDIA Inception member gets a custom set of ongoing benefits, such as NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute credits, marketing support, and technology assistance, which provides start-ups with the fundamental tools to help them grow.
Agdhi aims to create the next revolution in agriculture. The start-up is revolutionising agriculture by introducing digital technology and building alternative solutions to facilitate sustainable methods in agriculture.
