Agrifood is one of the most important industrial sectors in Belgium and its technological evolution is somewhat underestimated. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, and most of all, data-driven decision-making.
Digital passports, datahubs, remote sensing, precision farming, hyperspectral analysis, autonomous agri-machines …, the technology is already available today. Will applications remain artisanal or will it become widespread across all agrifood subsectors?
What will be the real impact of AI in agrifood and how will SME’s deal with this evolution? The MindGate visionary seminar will bring answers to those questions.
