    In this speech Willie tackles 10 major technologies impacting agriculture today, from autonomy to electrification and what that might mean to the audience. While the farmer is top of mind in the conversation, this speech can also be geared to a non-ag audience with the goal of helping them better understand where agriculture is today, and where it’s headed. And help the audience understand the importance of these tools for the future of food production.

    In this session, Willie explores what Autonomy means and how it can be deployed on
    the farm. From determining the right size of machines, to innovations in autonomy in
