FarmWise is out to prove that farms could benefit from greater automation (and fewer chemicals). The San Francisco-based startup has developed autonomous farming robots that so far have been targeted at weeding. The robots leverage machine learning and computer vision—along with high-precision mechanical tools—to provide "personalized care to every plant they touch," FarmWise said. The robots can "cleanly" pick weeds from fields, eliminating the need for harmful chemicals, the company said. In September, FarmWise raised a $14.5 million Series A round to expand its engineering and operation teams while investing further in R&D.
