Bhubaneswar, Feb 26: Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, is slated to visit the Odisha capital on February 28, reports said. During his visit, Gates will be visiting Krushi Bhawan in the city.

 “I’ll visit an agricultural monitoring centre in the state of Odisha where government officials use DPI to give farmers real-time guidance. Thanks to Aadhaar, this centre is able to maintain a registry of 7.5 million farmers—even if they don’t own land—and their crops, so officials can keep track of who is growing what (and, therefore, what kind of farming advice they need). It has also developed a chatbot that makes it easy for farmers to get the latest information about their crops, using AI to tailor content to their particular needs and in their local language,” Gates wrote in his blog.

It is noteworthy that in 2017, the Odisha Government signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, focusing on enhancing the utilization of data management in the agriculture sector. The primary objective of this agreement is to enhance the livelihoods of small-scale farmers and foster inclusive growth within the sector.
