the future of

agriculture

strategic foresight & innovation 

A collaboration with Melih Yazici, Ian Morgan and meaghan robson

2017

My Role in this project: presentations, 

Design Strategy and research.

 

 

Data-collecting agricultural systems enhanced with AI and shared across user platforms worldwide are the future of agriculture.

 

Artifical Intelligence and Cybersecurity systems are combined to create more sustainable, reliable, meaningful and empowering agricultural system for the entire world. 

 

Greenpeace exists because this fragile earth deserves a voice.

 

It needs change.

It needs action.

 

What do they offer already?

syntelligence

Artificial intelligence + Synchronization

Synchronized data-recording &  learning AI systems

DATA

to improve agriculture worldwide

 

The collected data will synchronize across various systems, sharing information on a bigger-scale platform worldwide to make our agricultural systems better for the future, to learn from each other and grow together. 

 

why is ai technology

beneficial to farmers?

AI technology collects information and disperses it around a collective network.

 

Farmers all over the world will see the positive effects of collective knowledge while expanding their products reach by increasing the quality of products and speed of growth

 

This will result to higher yields of crops, therefore higher profits, which can help them invest back into their machinery and technology that will further improve the agricultural systems.

 

Support of cybersecurity

Transferring funds can be protected and tracked easily transparently. When a client buys products from a provider, Greenpeace will be able to hold the funds until they get confirmation/ feedback from the client about the products to make sure of the quality and the number of products. This process can be tracked by all participants at the same time. We believe that transparency can create safer and a more reliable atmosphere between all participants.  

 

This will show all the providers that Greenpeace is transparent, and is a loyal organization to its participants and is willing to create better, sustainable and reliable agricultural systems for the future.  

 

As Greenpeace does not accept any donations from governments or corporations and only relies on individual supporters and foundations grants, this service that we have created can provide safe process steps to donors and foundations as well as to food providers and buyers. 

 

We believe that transparency is the best and trustworthy way of exchange between parties. Donors will also benefit from this transparency as they could see where their donations are being used. 

 

 

 

How can we make people safe about what they are eating and lower their concerns related to food production? 

Through Syntelligence, Greenpeace could help us collect data about people who are in need of certain nutrients or products around the world to guarantee their health and safety. In this system, local farmers, food providers, buyers, and Greenpeace are all connected throughout all the processes.

 

Weekly analysis and nutrition scanning per item will provide information about the quality and safety of the products. This knowledge will educate the consumer about the products that they are buying, where they come from, how they are made, and in which condition to educate them about their overall health. 

Applying Syntelligence to agricultural systems will prove to be beneficial to the protection of the environment and sustainability across the globe.

 

The collected information is synchronized with databases and is accessible to other users such as researchers and developers. Through the distribution and use of AI technology within agricultural industries, there will be an opportunity to produce larger quantities of food with less harm to the earth. 

 

Agricultural professionals are beginning to employ technologically advanced farming methods and technologies in order to improve efficiency and growth in corps in livestock. As the potential capability of AI quickly evolves, these new synchronized farming solutions will continue to improve, creating higher yields of food and natural resources for the masses.  

 

Strategic Partnership

Collaboration with companies such as GoFundMe can bring new transparent systems that could strengthen our product. This new transparency could even increase the number of donations made to Greenpeace. 

Blockchain technology could be used to secure and protects the funds for all the parties involved. 

Transparency and security will build the consumers' trust to use the system confidently. 

 

 

 

When/where will AI systems be implemented into mainstream food industry

AI systems will eventually be implemented on all levels of the agricultural food industry. From the initial plantation of seedlings in the fields to the supervision and rotation of produce in the market, AI will be overseeing and streamlining the process from start to finish. AI's ability to autonomously communicate with itself in real time is a critical aspect of its efficiency to the global food stock. 

 

If a problem is detected within the agricultural chain, the integrated network will be able to identify and correct the issue before any major damage is done. 

 

The benefits of implementing AI into all levels of agriculture will create a beneficial effect in reducing food waste and famine globally. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

where/how can people access data collected from Greenpeace?

Greenpeace states in their mission statement that they work towards "Campaigning for sustainable agriculture by rejecting genetically engineered organisms, protecting biodiversity and encouraging socially responsible farming". 

 

With this initiative in mind, Greenpeace will be responsible for maintaining and disclosing the information collected, while remaining true to their values and transparent.
