Adaviv is combining machine vision and optical sensing at the macro and micro scale with robotics and biology to capture rich high-resolution data of living organisms in order to improve commercial grower's sustainability, operational efficiency and profitability. Adaviv's AI technology uses these data to generate actionable insights. Put into action, these insights are used to adjust the growing environment and resources, enabling the crop plants to grow to their fullest potential or to a specific desired quality outcome using less energy and resources (light, fertilizers and nutrients, fungicides, chemicals and biological controls). Our vision is to deploy this technology in controlled-environment growing systems such as hybrid greenhouses, to not only increase yields and improve quality and consistency for producers, but to also drive exploration and discovery into new methods of crop productions and sustainable controlled environment agriculture in the contexts of climate change and arable land scarcity.

Uptrust is an innovative social enterprise working to reform money bail systems and dismantle the myth that low income defendants represent a risk of flight. Our text-message-based communication tool connects defendants to their public defender and relevant community services.

Currently, local governments spend more than $9 billion on unnecessary pretrial incarceration, and an additional $1 billion issuing and enforcing FTAs. Uptrust provides a win-win to its government partners: safely lowering their jail populations saves money and allows citizens to lead free and productive lives. Uptrust launched in California in 2016 and is now working with 15 public defender offices reaching over 150,000 pretrial defendants. Uptrust is backed by several leading national foundations and has received press from media outlets such as TechCrunch, The New York Times, and US News & World Report.
