Seer Insights is an exciting new startup coming out of the Microsoft Innovation Center South Australia (MICSA) in lovely Adelaide. Through a student project the young entrepreneurs realized that they might be onto something globally significant.
This being Australia, wine is a serious business, yet think of a business where predictions of the annual production can be out by as much as 30 per cent – and where no one will be the least bit surprised at that variation.
That's the extraordinary situation today with grapes being grown for wine-making, and it's an expensive problem that three Adelaide University students are well on the way to solving.
In the process, they just might be solving problems with other farmed crops that could have implications for global food supply which is especially relevant when we deal with the implications of climate change.
