Blog | Energy crisis: anticipating with algorithms
Many companies have been hit hard by the soaring energy prices caused by the war in Ukraine and the energy transition. This requires continuous consideration of crop data, weather data and costs. Rudolf de Vetten describes in his blog how algorithms are able to make these trade-offs continuously and perform the right actions 24/7. This way growers can achieve optimal control of the climate much more precisely per department, resulting in significantly less energy waste.
Blog ‘ Who decides?’
Algorithms determine our daily lives increasingly: they guide your choice of music, interests, the job vacancies you see and what you order for dinner. It’s all very convenient, but is it desirable? In the blog of Rudolf de Vetten, Chief Product Officer, he explains the way in which Blue Radix uses the algorithms. That’s really different. We take the grower’s unique crop strategy as a starting point. That results in a solution that allows growers to determine the direction and what is important.
Blog | Master of your own data?
An autonomous greenhouse consists of many components and domains, like robotics, sensors and data-driven installations, all of which must ultimately work together. Data is the connecting factor here, and is therefore very valuable. But who actually owns the data? And how do you reach agreements on this as a grower? Which agreements does Blue Radix have with growers about data ownership? You can read more about this in the Blog of Ronald Hoek.
Algorithms in the greenhouse, a black box for growers?
What does it mean to trust algorithms as a grower? Are you surrendering to a black box? You don’t want to trust something that you don’t understand. The question is: does it work that way? Do you not trust technology until you fully understand how it works? Read more in the blog written by Rudolf de Vetten, Chief Product Officer at Blue Radix.
BLOG | What horticulture can learn from the electric vehicle evolution
When electric cars began to appear about 10 years ago, the various market parties were busy developing their own own plugs, their own charging stations, their own ways of settling accounts with consumers. Complexity at its best. Fortunately, the market came to the conclusion that the growth of electric driving depends on good infrastructure and cooperation. In greenhouse horticulture we can learn a lot from this interoperability How and what? Read more in CEO Ronald Hoek’s blog.
BLOG | Still setting your own climate setpoints? A waste of time!
A blog by Rudolf de Vetten, Chief Product Officer at Blue Radix. Does it still make sense for experienced growers to spend their valuable time determining climate setpoints? Time for a completely different approach! How? More in this blog.
Blog | How data quality becomes undisputed
We work a lot with data in the greenhouse. More and more. There are often problems around working with data where quality is almost always the reason. In this blog Ronald discusses the solutions.
Blog | The sheep with 8 legs
Laurens van der Spek is Chief Operations Officer at Blue Radix. In this blog he describes what the rise of artificial intelligence means for greenhouse horticulture. What skills will be needed in the greenhouse of the future?
BLOG | The dance of human and machine
The claim is that algorithms can do your work, and perhaps even better. What do you do? Resist it? Or take part in the dance?
