Big Data in Agriculture Convention
There are good and growing insights about how humanity can live within the natural, biological, and climatic boundaries of the planet. New models are emerging for managing ethics and multi-stakeholder coordination and action. Data and digital technologies are demonstrating the agility, precision, and potential to yield the insights we need to manage this complexity effectively. To claim these potential solutions we need trust: in institutions, in firms, in dynamic and expanding human communities, and in the technologies themselves that can help us build the future.
This year’s Big Data in Agriculture Convention will be hosted by The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) and will explore how building resilient global food security requires us to navigate a complex net of interactions between the biosphere, economy, technology, and society.
