flux is developing a device to assist hydroponics growers that aggregates data from thousands of sites around the world, and uses algorithms and machine learning to predict and optimize the growth of food and plants. The flux device, Eddy, is placed in the growing environment on the waters surface where its sensors monitor the nutrition content of the water. It connects to the flux mobile app, sending data and guidance to the grower’s phone. By aggregating input from fluxs globally-connected network, the program supplies expertise for individuals and smallholder farms, putting them on the same footing as giant agricultural conglomerates.
