Target Audience: 

Innovators/Enterpreneurs/investors in Agrifood

Involved Partner(s): 

Wageningen University

Wageningen University participated to the Global Agripreneurship Summit, where the main topic of discussion was the "future farmer 4.0". Dr. Ioannis Athanasiadis (first from the left in the picture) represented the CYBELE project participating in the panel discussion examining how Cloud and Quantum Computing can help feed the world. All over the world, software developers, data scientists, agronomists and farmers are joining forces to enhance food production with the use of technology and especially the cloud sometimes with very dramatic results. Quantum computer, a totally mind-bending machine that takes advantage of the fact that tiny particles like electrons can be in many states at the same time, would enable a faster and more accurate analysis of catalytic processes, among others. With the use of quantum computers, challenges such as this, do not require centuries to be resolved, but they can be addressed through a few experiments.
