In its most recent World Urbanization Prospects report, UN predicts that, by 2050, 66% of the world’s population will live in urban areas. This growing urbanization will lead to a decrease in the workforce in rural areas. Innovative technologies using cognitive systems will help address this challenge by easing farmers’ work, removing the need for large numbers of people to work the land. Many operations will be done remotely, processes will be automated, risks will be identified and issues solved before occurring. Farmers will be able to make more informed and rapid decisions. In the future, the right mix of skills will probably increasingly be technology and agricultural skills rather than pure agricultural.
