Webinar series: Digital Twins in Agriculture
09/12/2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Global food demand is estimated to rise around 50% in the next 30 years, while arable land per capita continuously decreases. On the other hand, energy dependency of modern farming technics and the farm to fork food chain increases. Efficiency management has become a strategic factor for food and agriculture. Digital twin concept appears as one of the key methods for the efficiency management.
Digital twins in agriculture can potentially be used by the farmers, agronomists, traders and the governmental authorities at different scales. It enables near-real-time crop status monitoring and management through fusion of models, operational records, remote sensing data and the in-situ measurements. It has wide span of potential usage that includes planning, production, farm management, basin management, market management, sustainability and the food logistics.
Although the popularity of the digital twin raises, there are also many questions about its feasibility, applicability, suggested methods and the possible performance in real-life cases. Professor Bedir Tekinerdogan is one of the leading scientists in digital twin research for agriculture. He will present and evaluate potentials, concerns and suggestions about digital twins in agriculture.
Prof.Dr. Bedir Tekinerdogan is full professor and chairholder of the Information Technology group at Wageningen University, The Netherlands. His current research at Wageningen University concerns smart system of systems engineering, with an emphasis on software engineering, artificial intelligence, and information technology. He has more than 25 years of experience in information technology and software/systems engineering. He is the author of more than 400 peer-reviewed scientific papers and 6 edited books. He has been active in dozens of national and international research and consultancy projects with various large software companies, whereby he has worked as a principal researcher and leading software/system architect in different domains such as enterprise systems, automotive systems, critical infrastructures, cyber-physical systems, satellite systems, defense systems, command and control systems, and the precision farming. Professor Tekinerdogan is a board member of ISAM.
