It's about costumer development. What does it mean to "recognize grass"?
I'm not sure if grass is the green part or it's actually refer to weeds... I'm confused by this example

So the teaching team nicely suggested that, you know, in California we actually have agriculture outside of Silicon Valley, about 60 miles away is Salinas Valley. We said if you could recognize grass could you maybe recognize plants or weeds. And they went yeah, maybe we could. So they got out of the building again, this time talking to farmers, asking them would it be any value to actually be able to tell the difference between a weed and a plant and maybe some way to automatically kill the weeds.

I think it's literal. As far as I can tell from looking at the full context, this is talking about a robot that they have developed. The robot is able to recognise grass.

If you want to build a robot that removes undesired plants and leaves desired plants alone, you have to teach it to recognize the difference.
On a golf course, grass is a good plant, and weeds are bad.
In a field of strawberries, grass and weeds are bad.
The robot has to tell the difference between weeds, grass and strawberries.
