FWD23: Agriculture

Innovation in the Everyday: Using Data to Create Efficiencies in Agribusiness

18 May 2023

3pm CT

Loft Lucia, 7 N Carpenter St, Chicago, IL 60607

We need the future now. And it just arrived

At FWD23 we focused on how leaders within Agribusiness can use the power of data and AI to start generating ROI now.

We covered the challenges of an agricultural industry that has a vast harvest of numbers but struggles to turn them into value.

We’re not talking big tech investments that stretch your shrinking budget.

Instead, we looked at how you can build on what you already have, using data and AI technologies to automate, optimize and create efficiencies that counteract a tide of rising costs.

This is Innovation in the Everyday: practical, predictable and providing growth when you need it: right now.
