From farm to fork: how big data puts food on your table
Liliya Serazetdinova (Earlham Institute)
The Gallery Stage, The Forum, Millennium Plain, Norwich, NR2 1TF
The AgriFood supply chain is under significant pressures related to food security, climate change, and consumer demands for affordable and higher quality food. Various technologies have already been deployed producing a large amount of data, which can be used to guide decision-making to improve productivity, reduce wastage, and increase traceability across the AgriFood supply chain.
There are many examples of the use of data from farm to fork, including improving efficiency in livestock production, supporting automation and use of robotics in crop production, increasing food safety and evidencing its provenance.
In this talk, Liliya Serazetdinova from the Earlham Institute will explore the challenges in digitalisation of the AgriFood supply chain, as well as approaches that could help to unlock the benefits of using big data.
This talk is suitable for ages 12 and up.
UEA talks on the Norwich Science Festival's Gallery Stage are free and there's no need to book - simply turn up, take a seat and enjoy the talk!
