Big Data in Agriculture Convention 16-18 October 2019

CGIAR and partners are holding the Big Data in Agriculture Convention 2019, under the theme, TRUST: Humans, Machines & Ecosystems.

This year’s Convention will be hosted by The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) and held at their campus in Hyderabad, India during 16-18 October.

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 third annual event to bring together the people and organizations that make the BIG DATA Platform successful. Three days of focused, action-based discussion to find commonalities across research institutes, governments, and private organizations set the stage for a productive and data-driven year ahead!
