SC2 Workshop 2: A Global Data Ecosystem for Agriculture and Food

  1. 1. A global data ecosystem for agriculture and food – where next? Syngenta - R&D Information Systems – Data Sciences GODAN Summit - 16th Sept 2016 Graham Mullier
  2. 2. 2 Classification: public Data ecosystem – a roadmap of collaborations
  3. 3. 3 Classification: public Data ecosystem – next steps with the GODAN working group “For a data revolution to happen, agriculture and food need a fabric of interoperable and interplaying infrastructure layers that will make data sharing and exchange as natural to us as it is to use the road or rail infrastructure to move from one country to another.” Currently running a data hack – brilliant work by trained data scientists – which is a lot like building a temporary bridge. You can see the demo at the Agroknow booth CC-BY:WikimediauserХомелка CC-BY:Wikipediauserpostdlf And for the long term we want a more permanent structure – something that we can expect to use routinely, like a bridge connecting parts of a city. Plus policies, rules of the road, a sustainable maintenance regime.
  4. 4. 4 Classification: public Data ecosystem – a world in motion – led by empirical data science Sharing scientific knowledge: Major companies - Syngenta and others - are investing into linked data platforms for their R&D EU and CGIAR are building a platform based on linked open data and big data analytics for their scientific data and outputs INRA, WUR, Agroknow & FAO will coordinate the development of a 10y roadmap for a scientific data infrastructure in agriculture and food Going beyond the hacks: • Syngenta, Agroknow, Agrimetrics, CABI combining data by hand today • Shared vocabularies, data models and well-formed APIs would make this so much easier Getting the right people together - GODAN Data Ecosystem working group: Open Harvest ’16 & Chania Declaration: public and private sector working closely on data sharing GODAN Data Ecosystem for Agri-food WG to bring senior data people together (co-led by Agroknow & Syngenta) Engage people developing data infrastructure pieces Engage donors and funding agencies
  5. 5. 5 How can the data ecosystem help? – join us and help to shape the answer Classification: public More arable land is needed More water is needed More human labor is needed Weeding a one hectare farm takes 200 hours of labor By 2050 four billion people will live in countries with water scarcity We lose a soccer field of farmland every second
  6. 6. 6 Classification: public Data ecosystem – how you can get involved: If you are building data platforms or infrastructures - join the GODAN WG (contact Graham or Nikos for more info) If you are producing, managing or using scientific data - follow GODAN for an announcement on roadmap development events & how to contribute with your view If you are funding such work - share with us your priorities, interests and planned interventions to (at least) avoid overlaps and double-funding NikosM@agroknow.com Graham.Mullier@Syngenta.com @GrahamMullier
