AI-Powered Insect Trap: A Solution to the $220 Billion Pest Problem

Can an AI-powered bug trap solve the $220 billion pest issue?

According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, pests can destroy up to 40 percent of world crops every year. This results in $220 billion worth of economic losses. Trapview uses AI to tackle this problem.

The Slovenian company developed a device which traps and identifies insects and also acts as a warning system, predicting their spread.

Matej Stefancic is the CEO of Trapview, a subsidiary of EFOS. He says, \”We have built the largest database of insect pictures in the world. This allows us to use modern AI-based computer vision in the best possible way.\”
