The taste of basil has been enhanced using algorithms that determine optimal growth conditions
The future of agriculture: Cyber agriculture - technology short science news

Researchers are in the process of growing crops that taste good, without genetic modifications. To this end, they use computer algorithms to determine optimal growing conditions to obtain the best concentration that give the plants flavor.

The first plants to have been cultured with artificial intelligence is basil, but it is envisaged that this is only the first of many.

Researchers believe that such “Cyber agriculture”, as they call it, may play an important role in growing crops, not only to improve taste but also to make plants more resistant to disease or to study how crops grow with changing climate conditions.
