Internet of Things, Cloud and Artificial Intelligence are among the major information technologies that are driving the digitalization of many public and private sectors, and for this reason they are called "digital enablers". The adoption of these technologies however often leads to a change in established practices and opens up new, unexpected usage scenarios. The tutorial will first present in an intuitive and informal way the concepts of Internet of Things, cloud and Artificial Intelligence, and then it will discuss some use cases related to their adoption in digital agriculture.
