Re: Organically or inorganically!
It would be a break through to have machine learning distinguish between weeds and crops and mechanically remove the weeds instead of using chemicals. But, I'm afraid the cost of doing so will still leave us will lots of chemicals in the ground, although because of the newer technology less chemical than before.

Ha! Excellent point about video speeds. I hadn't thought of that, but yes -- both will probably move pretty slow.

Re: Organically or inorganically!
It'll be very interesting to see how these robots revolutionize farming. Killing weeds mechanically, instead of chemically or bio-chemically, would be a huge leap. 

And I, for one, would only watch it on at least 2x speed.. plants grow pretty slowly, and I'm sure the robots don't move that fast, either.

since the 90s
John Deere has harbored these aspirations since the 90s. Unfortunately, some of their talent left for other industries during the "gestation" period. I'm glad John Deere's plans are now seeing fruition.

Organically or inorganically!
The weed terminators hopefully won't turn on us.. and I can just imagine an Arnold Schwartznegger in overalls and a straw hat.
