Connected Coop
Companies are creating chicken coops with AI-powered features for monitoring
Trend - Farming architecture and hardware brands are partnering up with artificial intelligence (AI) companies to launch connected chicken coops. These coops use AI to monitor chickens' activities, identify when maintenance is needed, and reduce variability for small and large-scale farms.

Insight - While most farmers do so full-time, there are many consumers with personal-sized farms in addition to their regular jobs. These consumers do not have enough bandwidth to micro-manage each aspect of their farm with the precision of a full-time farmer. As such, these consumers desire hands-off solutions for maintenance that does not compromise on quality or reliability. Brands are addressing the needs of these consumers with curated, connected, and AI-powered technologies.
Workshop Question - How could your brand incorporate AI-powered systems to generate hands-off solutions?
