AI & the future of food

The world needs to produce more food in the next 50 years than in the prior 10,000, at a time when climate change and urbanization are making our crops less productive. 

Fortunately, a new digital revolution is underway in agriculture. The future of food is being transformed by the convergence of data science, AI and genomics. 

Canada can be a leader in this new green revolution. This session will look at AI’s impact on the future of food, and how we can use our national AI strengths to bolster our position as a global food leader.
