Liberty Health Sciences (CSE:LHS) (OTCQX:LHSIF) said on Thursday they have signed an exclusive partnership with AdaViv Inc to improve production of cannabis at its Liberty Health Sciences (LHSIF) facility in Gainesville, Florida. 

AdaViv will integrate its adaptive Computer Vision software and Machine Learning platform into Liberty's 360 Innovation Campus and, together, they will look to push the state-of-the-art in greenhouse technology and precision growing to new levels of productivity and efficiency, a company statement said.

AdaViv's technology enables constant plant-level inspection while the AI computer can uncover hidden plant biometrics that translates data into actionable insights for growers like Liberty.

"We take cultivation seriously and through the implementation of AdaViv we will have the necessary information to greatly improve our cultivation output," said George Scorsis, the chief executive of Liberty Health Sciences.
