Using Technology to Build Resiliency in our Food Systems

Here's what you missed, recording is below!



Technology has undoubtedly reinvented agriculture in recent decades, greatly increasing the efficiency of farmland and allowing growers to provide food at a low cost to billions.

AgTech as we know it has revolutionized our food systems in recent decades; continued capital deployed to technologies for the farm – including utilizing AI, IoT, blockchain, robotics, and biological testing – is allowing growers around the world to optimize their resources.

Our food systems are changing rapidly as technologies are developed and deployed in all areas of the supply chain – literally from farm to fork. The challenges to our food systems continue to grow, however, as resource and environmental constraints create the continued need to innovate.

The role of agtech will only grow; Silicon Vally Forum is proud to be a supporter of his burgeoning sector by working with the entrepreneurs, investors, accelerators, and growers who are dedicated to building better food systems.

Since 2015, Silicon Valley Forum has held our annual summer gathering, Seeds of our Future, as a part of our efforts to support those driving this sector forward.

While 2020 is providing challenges for all of those in the agriculture and agtech sectors, we are dedicated to continue supporting the work of technologists and growers around the world.
