In this talk, researcher Denis Pastory Rubanga presents on a mini project that seeks to use Computer Vision to test and predict pest infestation in tomatoes.

According to Denis, the tomato pest, Tuta Absoluta has become an economic threat to tomato farmers across the globe, especially small scale farmers who depend on the crop for their livelihood.

His multidisciplinary team set to work on this project to create an early detection and quantification solution using Computer Vision.
