Data Science Applications Team Leader, Plant and Food Research

AI is everywhere and everybody wants AI. The challenge for Plant and Food Research was to develop cutting edge data science capabilities which support its science and strengthens its commercial activities. In this talk, I will discuss some of the challenges we have faced to promote AI within the company and how AI requires a different way to engage with both staff and clients. See a glimpse into the future and how AI will change Plant and Food Research and the agricultural industry.

Peter’s research includes using machine learning for plant breeding applications, the development of user-friendly interfaces for land-use decision making, and the use of natural language processing techniques to increase consumer engagement in horticultural R&D.
