IPaT Thursday Think Tank: Wearables in Agriculture

Bruce Rasa, CEO and Founder of AgVoice, will lead a discussion about the voice and audio work Georgia Tech is doing with his team. We'll also talk about opportunities in agriculture wearables and interfaces in harsh, outdoor environments, and the future directions for speech and audio interfaces that are domain-specific.

AgVoice is an Ag Tech startup focused on wearable technology solutions for global agriculture, serving farmers and their trusted partners. Rasa has 23 years of experience in high tech marketing, product management and sales at IBM, NCR and the AGCO Corporation. In 2013, he was selected as one of 8,000 Google Glass Explorers with his unique proposal to test the innovative new device on potential applications supporting global agriculture. During 2013, he shared Google Glass demos with more than 600 people from 22 countries, and collected market research based on participants observations. Rasa's extended family operates a 5th generation 10,000 acre farm in western Missouri raising corn, soybeans, wheat, hay, cattle and apples. Learn more at: www.AgVoiceGlobal.com
