CGIAR Platform for Big Data Event: Digital Dynamism for Adaptive Food Systems

Virtual

The 4th Annual CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture Convention on food system resilience and digital mitigation tools 

Date: Monday, 19 October 2020 – Saturday, 24 October 2020

Time: 19:00 (UTC+8) 

The CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture is where information becomes power: the power to predict, prescribe, and produce more food, more sustainably. It democratizes decades of agricultural data empowering analysts, statisticians, programmers, and more to mine information for trends and quirks, and develop rapid, accurate, and compelling recommendations for farmers, researchers, and policymakers.

This convention is the fourth annual event to bring together the people and organizations that make the BIG DATA Platform successful. This year presents a unique opportunity to “walk the talk” on agile, adaptive, digitally-enabled collective action. BIG DATA has transitioned its annual convention to be an inclusive, accessible, and fully online event.

The event theme, Digital Dynamism for Adaptive Food Systems, will examine food system resilience and highlight how digital tools and technologies can help BIG DATA sense, respond, and (re)build better systems in times of global food security crises.

This convention will be the first One CGIAR hosted the event, leveraging inclusive inputs from each of the global Centers offering a glimpse of how they are employing digitally-enabled, dynamic methods to combat global food security challenges flowing from current crises.
