Delve: AI-griculture, A High-Tech Approach to Decarbonizing Agricultural Food Supply Chains
One of the largest contributors to climate change worldwide, the agricultural food supply chain crosses international borders and reaches across industries and sectors. Reducing its environmental impact requires complex, high-tech solutions like artificial intelligence—and the people to implement them at the right time, in the right places.
How can the food supply chain industry act as an entry point to reach decarbonization and net-zero emissions by 2050? The Desautels Faculty of Management Sustainable Growth Initiative (SGI) and the McGill Centre for the Convergence of Health and Economics (MCCHE) recently welcomed scholars and business representatives to discuss the role of artificial intelligence technologies and collaborative digital ecosystems in transforming the agri-food sector.
“How can we co-design, implement, and monitor lasting multiscale intervention strategies that explicitly consider multilevel and multi-entity capabilities, resources, and interests?”
