BDVA Task Forces


Big Data Agriculture

Focus and activities

This Task Force focuses on the potential of Data and Industrial AI in agriculture and in any Bioeconomy sub-sector

Agrifood (or smart farming in the wide sense) is one of the sectors with the highest potential in terms of application of digital technologies, with special focus on IoT and Big Data. It appears as one of the economic sectors that could greatly benefit from the Digital Transformation movement and we see this reflected in the increasing investments on Digital Technologies by the European Commission.

The Task Force Agrifood is instrumental to extend the constituency of BDVA and its knowledge looking at the potential of Data and Industrial AI in agriculture and in general any Bioeconomy sub-sector. It will allow the BDVA community to learn from developments and deployments in Smart Farming and at the same time, will create a channel to collaborate with sectorial players. The voice of farmers is expected to be considered as data is a sensitive issue, helping BDVA to adopt user-centricity approaches in a field where the position of IT players has been the predominant one.
