The Big Data Revolution in the Canadian Agricultural Sector: A Symposium on Opportunities, Challenges, and Alternatives
Join us for The Big Data Revolution in the Canadian Agricultural Sector: A Symposium on Opportunities, Challenges and Alternatives.
Primary production agriculture is changing rapidly due to major developments in digital “smart” technology. In what is referred to as Big Ag Data, agricultural technology providers are combining data from “smart” devices with weather and soil data to provide farmers with seed, fertilizer, and chemical recommendations designed to improve yields, environmental outcomes and economic return.
This event will share and mobilize information about who owns and benefits from agricultural data and how it is being collected, shared, and protected from a privacy perspective. The event will also look at how public policy, codes of conduct and organizational models (e.g., data co-operatives) might ensure equitable data ownership and control.
