Food’s AI Opportunity

AI can bolster the resilience of our food system and power a more sustainable economy

Join us at Food's Future on Oct 4, as we delve into the Food's AI Opportunity, a digital event that’s part of CityAge’s ongoing series focused on Food’s Future. 

AI can help track and counter climate change impacts while promoting climate resilience through advanced genomics.  

We’ll explore how emerging science and burgeoning technologies such as remote sensors, visual recognition, and robotics can employ AI to make a tangible difference in Food’s Future , and how to prepare for the skills needed in the future.
