Under the responsibility of researchers Marc-André Sirard and Éric Paquet, OBVIA is proud to collaborate with the MAPAQ and the Forum IA Québec for a series of webinar-workshops on the challenges and opportunities related to the application of artificial intelligence in the bio-food sector. This series allows to sensitize the different actors of this sector to the abundance and the immense potential of the application of AI methods to these data for the benefit of agriculture and aquaculture. In addition, it highlights several challenges, whether related to data governance, the lack of resources for the valorization of these data or the lack of qualified and interested workforce.
This webinar focused on issues related to digital data leading to AI in the bio-food sector.
Nathalie de Marcellis-Warin, President and Chief Executive Officer of CIRANO, co-responsible for OBVIA's "Monitoring and Investigations" section, Full Professor at Polytechnique Montréal, Henri-Paul Rousseau, CIRANO Invited Fellow, Visiting Professor at the Paris School of Economics, Adjunct Professor at HEC Montréal, Chairman of Noovelia, and Ingrid Peignier, Senior Director of Partnerships and Research Valorization and Projects Director at CIRANO, presented on the theme "Data in Agriculture - Perceptions, Issues, Challenges and Opportunities".
