Jesper Svennon, Planta

I’ve been working with the Plant.id team for at least 3 years. I won’t talk about techno-logy, everything works as it should and our multiple years cooperation proves that. But more important are the people who stay be-hind it. Always cooperative, reliable, want-ing to help their clients and supporting them in any cases.

Aleksei Metelkin, Plantr

We’ve been using plant.id to support our plant identification app and PlantStory.app, which served more than one million plant lovers and tens of millions of plant identifi-cations over the past 3 years. plant.id is accurate, fast, and easy to use. We really appreciate the business opportunity with them!

2024 Roadmap

  • March 2024: Plant.id Model Update. We will enhance the Plant.id model by adding new plant species, increasing the identification accuracy and expanding the knowledge base with more information.
  • April 2024: Customized Plant Lists. We will create lists of particular plants, defined by geography (e.g., North America or Europe) or plant types (e.g., houseplants, garden plants, or trees).
  • May 2024: Plant.id Meets LLMs. We will launch a beta version of Plant.id that integrates large language models (LLMs), for example, to provide the option to ask questions to refine identification results.
  • June 2024: Symptom Recognition in Health Assessment: We will enable the users to locate the symptoms of plant diseases using object detection. This feature will help users to confirm the suggested diagnosis.
