7393: FARM: Supporting 500 Million Small-Scale Farmers to Tackle the Global Food Challenge Using AI

Weather

The global population is growing, especially in Africa, and more food needs to be sustainably produced to feed everyone. Whilse 80% of the world’s food is produced by small-scale farmers, these crucial actors fail to produce food efficiently. By combining different data sources—ranging from social-economic data to weather and satellite data—FARM learns and adapts to eliminate inefficiencies in the agricultural value chain. With the ultimate goal to feed the world in 2050, FARM promises to deliver the next big thing in agriculture. Our platform helps the poorest, but is designed to impact many more.
