The Wimpling Wing


For many years The Wimpling Wing was an unlabelled, dormant seed lurking deep in my mind.

Years later the desire to simplify the operations on my family’s farm triggered its germination and it wasn’t long before self interest shifted to a wider curiosity. A curiosity of how agriculture could feed our world’s burgeoning population, and how it would do so without destroying the planet in the process.

The fourth agricultural revolution is upon us – embracing machine learning and AI as it steps tentatively forwards. How far will it go? How far can it go? How far should it go? These three questions fuelled the development and evolution of The Wimpling Wing, and yet at the heart of everything there remains always the exploitative actions of man. 

Curious to know more? To gain some insight into the kind of mind gripped by a wimpling wing? Then join me as I take a weekly plunge into my research archive and other things that have piqued my interest.
