Mineral has an ambitious goal: they will use AI, machine learning and robots to tackle the climate crisis by feeding the world more efficiently.
We already said a while ago that they were coming curves in Google with their strategies for the near future, and that is that the entire conglomerate alphabetparent company of the search engine giant, is closing and rethinking many of its projects and subsidiaries with a dubious route to move resources and focus on technologies that are more applicable and useful for human evolution, such as artificial intelligence, health and, now, also food.
Our colleagues informed us about it. Android Police although all the media have rushed to publish the news, and it is that despite the fact that Mineral is the newest subsidiary company within Alphabetit seems that its leaders are going to receive a boost in the form of confidence and resources to continue applying and improving their technologies with the goal of developing more efficient cropswith greater resistance and use but without damaging the flavor and its nutrients.
Mineral is one of the most promising subsidiaries of Alphabet, with an objective that is also very important for the human species, such as achieving more efficient crops and helping to alleviate the climate disaster.
The idea is great and very important, especially because agriculture not only feeds the world but also releases tons of greenhouse gasesthus being one of the main contributors to the climate change that we suffer, already unstoppable.
We must evolve as a species, we must eat sustainably as the world’s population continues to increase, and this is where Alphabet wants to lead with a revolutionary project that focuses on collect data on plants and crops thanks to roboticssubsequently analyzing them with AI and machine learning to improve our cropsdevelop new, more sustainable agricultural practices and increase the quality of the soil we use to plant.
Obviously we do not have internal information and we don’t know for now if there will also be cuts in some of the Mineral projects, or if they will all continue as before, but at least it is good to confirm that this is one of the key projects of those who spoke to us in Alphabet when prioritizing.
It should be remembered that Mineral already worked with Driscoll’s to increase the quality of their strawberries and improve production, as well as in the development of germplasm banks to study bean crops globally.
We will see if this subsidiary Mineral manage to generate income and become profitableor if it is another project of the laboratory X in which thousands of dollars are buried without much judgment, although at least their goals are important to humanity So we encourage Alphabet to keep investing to try to slow down the coming climate disaster.
