  • Mô tả: Field farming is "the world's oldest profession," and not just because food plants have been cultivated for over 10,000 years. Its individual practitioners are old as well, the median age rising rapidly as young people abandon the farming lifestyle (the US Department of Agriculture reports a median age of 58 in 2012, up from 55 in 2002, with other countries showing similar data). However, today's agricultural robots excel at repetitive tasks, letting farmers tend to more strategic matters. Proponents believe robotic agriculture also will help ensure food is available for everyone, everywhere, from local sources. Food security is one of the driving forces behind "The Vegetable Factory," an indoor farm that the Japan-based company SPREAD Co Inc plans to open in Kyoto next year. Farm automation is particularly difficult because the environment varies so much -- especially when compared to clean labs.
