Digital Ag

There is an opportunity for Canada’s agricultural sector to be at the forefront of digital innovations. Food from Thought is leading this opportunity in the agricultural space through cutting-edge digital agricultural research that will advance technologies and approaches, develop integrated research data platforms that better support research questions, and develop best practices in the management of agri-food and biodiversity data, in areas such as security, accessibility, governance and regulations. With improved decision support tools, data sharing platforms, and research on best practices, the agricultural sector will be better equipped to efficiently manage and sustain their operations.

Projects will use machine learning, data mining, data manipulation, informatics, visualization and imaging technology, sensors, software, as well as cybersecurity monitoring to develop new ways of predicting and managing agricultural performance, as well as expand on existing technologies to improve research and cross-discipline analyses.
