Decentralized AI firm SingularityNET has announced a partnership with agriculture-focused Blockchain startup Hara at the World Web Forum

Hara’s objective is reportedly to use blockchain to provide Indonesian farmers with useful data like grain price, soil quality and land ownership details. The newly announced partnership between the two firms aims to use this data to offer AI-powered crop diagnosis and data analytics to the ecosystem, according to the press release.

As the press release notes, a main goal of the partnership for the firms is to expand access to information on crop diseases with the goal of making diagnosis more automated.

SingularityNET gained attention globally as the technology in part behind a humanoid robot named Sophia, developed by Hanson Robotics. The robotics firm’s chief scientist, Ben Goertzel, is also SingularityNET’s founder and CEO.
