Great nations and cultures have seen rise and fall, war and peace, prosperity, bounty and famine.
The World has gone through many technological revolutions, agricultural, financial, industrial, scientific. This has all produced a world in which we are all more connected, informed, able, resourceful, long-lived, and prosperous than ever before in human history. The side effect of all this pleasantry is the unpleasant realization that the global population is increasing, space is decreasing, while more resources are being consumed all at an exponential rate.
With over 7 billion people on this Earth and counting, with more places than just California suffering severe drought, with an ever changing climate, there must be a considerable effort produced, sooner than later, to ensure our ability to feed ourselves. Greed, pride, resources have all driven wars, let's prevent the next one from being fought over food and water.
We dare not stop there.
Instead, not only must work be done to secure our ability to produce food, let us do so better. The next technological revolution should be a homage to the first, a second agricultural revolution.
Together we can produce food that's more nutritious and fresh, decentralized and grown closer to the individual markets, efficiently, with fewer resources. It can be done sustainably while also being cost effective, we can learn and act to waste less, and now is the only time we've ever been able to do this.
This is an issue that society cannot ignore any further, and we're doing everything we can to address it. Thallo Tech's mission is to take advantage of our very opportune position in time.
Data silos are a thing of the past. We're using the vast amount of information, more than has ever been made globally or even publicly available, thanks to the Internet and its associated technologies. With this data, we're able to change the availability of information to everyone, in any environment, instead of just being handed down generation-to-generation, or via community members.
There's more computing power in the small space of your pocket than there is in most spacefaring devices and for a significantly cheaper price. We're producing technological platforms to take advantage of all the available and correlated data to produce efficiencies via automation, all accessible, traversable, and manipulable on any platform or device.
Education is key. We can develop the best vacuum in the world to clean up a mess, but if there's more and more garbage to clean up, the vacuum will soon become obsolete. We at Thallo Tech are providing community centered outreach programs to help educate people. We're showing the importance of food sustainability and production ecosystem, how to grow your own food and the various ways to do so. We're also presenting the issue of food loss, and how everyone can do their share to decrease waste.
Information and data analysis, technological developments, and education are key to what we do at Thallo Tech and the application to something so critical as our food supply is our focus. With all this, we're able to produce efficiencies, decrease labor and transportation in the distribution chain by decentralizing more food production into communities. We're able to develop and deploy technologies at a cost effective rate that allows any size, environment, or group to produce food at higher efficiencies with aid from automation. Whether to teach newcomers that don't have descended generational knowledge of farming, or the prepper who wants to know how to grow food in case the grocery store can't keep stock.

Large Agriculture Data System
In setting up a simple grow operation one has to assess environment factors, size, equipment, systems, crop trends, cost of operation, and it can become even more complicated from there. LADS has all this data and more available, from weather metrics, to resource pricing.
Many data sets are accessible as a function of time, such as the cost of electricity or weather metrics. Not only does LADS make traversing a query scope through time easy, but using that data can extrapolate information on commodities, markets, financial trajectory, and consumption rates.
Not only is LADS available to list and cross reference data sets, but it's able to visualize the data as well. Chart commodity or resource pricing over time across a map of North America for example, or maybe graph the distribution and cost of produce.
Not only does LADS provide data, it can also store new data. This new data can be expanded upon to create its own data set, or setup with a relational model to cross reference other data sets. The new data is accessible via LADS programatically on external sourced storage, and peering can be arranged to increase accessibility and distribution efforts.
Access the data stored within LADS with a dynamic web panel. Pull in raw metrics dumped from the databases, or use the visual query builder to select data spatially. From there apply it to various visual representations and cross reference other metrics for a more complete overview.
To power many of our platforms LADS is used to fuel algorithmic data analysis and populate information ledgers. We've made that same powerful API available to the public for use to extend functionality of external applications and collaborations.
Automation Driven Agriculture
ADA is not an application only available in a certain set of app stores or just on a stationary computer. The technology behind ADA allows access from any device or platform, all that's required is an Internet connection and web browser. ADA scales up and down to any size screen or device without limiting features or usability.
Not only is data encrypted over the wire and in the storage layer, but ADA has an unparalleled ACL. Allow employees to only have access to specific functions and sections, set permissions for your accountant to only be able to view book keeping data. Physically, attach motion sensing cameras and have alerts sent through ADA via text, phone, and email.
ADA is not only the platform for managing our automation technology, the modularity of the platform allows ADA to be the entire technological backbone of an operation. Set your robots and automation parameters, check metrics and statistics. Pull in additional LADS datasets to compare results, attach the Salt Smarts fertilizer computation engine to allow you to compute and track your fertilizer regimine right from the ADA panel. You can also use ADA to manage social media, communications and contacts, inventory, accounting, and even point of sale.
Each component in our expansive library of controlled and feedback oriented devices has been rigorously tested, and technologically vetted from the supply chain to the software that controls it. Setup couldn't be easier, new devices are detected on the network, mapped and assigned, labeled and visually programmed.
The physical layer is deployable in any environment, indoors or out in the sunshine. Switch from wireless or wired connectivity with the flick of a switch, directly powered, solar powered, with or without built-in battery backup. Uniformity does not affect performance or interoperability, ADA is capable and smart enough to handle many diverse interconnects.
Education, outreach, community engagement
The premise behind our Flourish program is simple but it's vital to progressing everyone's understanding of our food system. We've become separated from the understanding of where our food comes from, how it's made, and who makes it. So long as it is given to us on demand within a few minutes of ordering from the comfort of our car, all is right.
With Flourish our ambassadors engage communities, hold seminars, and provide hands-on demonstrations of current food growing methods, the technology involved, how store bought food gets to your plate, food resiliance, self sustainability, and more.

A few months ago a unique opportunity presented by the USDA and Microsoft was brought to our attention. In this partnership Microsoft presented the technological platform to store and access the vast amounts of data the USDA has collected. From this collaboration the USDA Innovation Challenge was created and presented by this partnership between the USDA and Microsoft made available as a "hackathon" on the Devpost platform.
Being in the business of big data analysis and agricultural technologies, we saw this as a challenge and took it as an eager opportunity to use the available data and some of our own in house data sets to produce a visual presentation of the provided metrics. This platform was dubbed VAIS, a Visualized Agriculture Information System.
Our interactive application incorporates weather information, production data from the NASS database, and crowd-sourced pricing data to create a meaningful picture of the United States food market. VAIS provides easily accessible, time-series, nation-wide data to help researchers address the vulnerability of the food system by visualizing how the nation’s food supply and production are changing as a direct result of climate change, consumer demand, and productivity. Utilizing our application, agricultural workers will make more informed decisions regarding the production and distribution of commodities across the United States. Integrating data from multiple sources is vital to the resiliency of America’s food supply and our application is a great way to begin addressing the challenges ahead of us.
We entered this competition mainly as a challenge and objective of innovative growth. Being simple in execution was imperative and VAIS provides an abundant amount of information without being buried by raw data. Processing the information in an interactive visual way with maps, charts, and including constantly updating crowd sourced data transforms the data into a form that's more easily digested.
To the delight of everyone VAIS quickly garnered public attention. We were proud when the competition winners were announced that VAIS was given the Popular Choice Award.
Welcome to the new Thallo Tech website. We've retooled our primary portal to better display our products, services, and information. It's been designed responsively to make it available to any platform, desktop, tablet, and mobile with all the same features and all the same information! Not only has our main website been redesigned and retooled in this fashion, but all of our products, services, and technologies have also been given the same platform independent advantage.
Now a farmer no longer needs to take a laptop out into the field to log data or access his stored aggregate information. The same technologies and platforms are accessible on any device, from a cell phone, to tablet, to desktop. No apps to install on your devices, no special permissions, with all the same functions you get on a full scale computing system.
An individual who uses our systems at home to track supplementary food systems can check up on their crops from the train ride home to time out on vacation. All of this produces an easy to use and accessible platform and peace of mind in any agricultural endeavour.
Our core group of members is a tight niche selection. We all have the same goal and motives. Today, we're proud to accept our newest member Daniel Rodenburg, our Marketing lead and Strategist. He's a Middle Tennessee State University graduate with a focus on agriculture sciences and business, so it's a benefit to have him able to wear many hats and be hands-on. His strengths come together and are distributed with his keen sense of social networking skills, marketing, and strategy development.
The connection was formed through a collaborative hospitality endeavour, conversation was started and led to discovering that each of us had similar passions. We all care about how our food is produced, where it comes from, and what we can do to feed ourselves more efficiently and educate others to do the same. With his education and experience in not only the agricultural field, but also in marketing and business strategy he has been a seamless and key integration into our team and the forward movements of Thallo Tech.
Daniel has fine tuned our marketing strategies, publications, in addition to creating leaner methodologies to our daily operations and long term goals. We're all excited and looking forward to our mutual growth and the collaborative plans in store.
