The Fresh Produce Consortium is excited to announce a brand new course for members dealing with the increasingly important area of artificial intelligence in fresh produce. The course’s focus is wholly on practicality, how to set ambitious but realistic expectations and how to derive value from such applications quickly.
Practical Applications of AI in Fresh Produce is a new interactive event where delegates will discuss the practical uses of AI in fresh produce. The course has two parts. Firstly, a 30-minute presentation will set the context and will use real-life examples to show the achievable benefits as well as the pitfalls to avoid.
The second part will be a discussion where members can explore the potential of this new technology, share their views and have their questions answered.
The course will be delivered by Mihai Ciobanu who built his first forecasting models in the late 90’s as a stock trader in Romania. He founded Fresh4cast, which provides forecast-as-a-service solutions specialised in fresh fruit and veg and aims to help its customers improve predictability through a combination of technology and highly-qualified customer service, in the same year.
