Data collection for sustainable machine learning in circular food industry/food production
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 4 600 000|
|Project duration||February 2023 - December 2024|
|Venture||Strategic innovation programme for process industrial IT and automation – PiiA|
|Call||PiiA: The Process Industry of the Future-Data-Driven and Sustainable - Autumn 2022|
Purpose and goal
By 2050, global food production will need to increase by 70% to meet the needs of the growing world population (FAO, 2021). A circular food production is a prerequisite for meeting the increased needs for food in Sweden and the world. The project aims to create a common standard for data collection and subsequently ML (Machine Learning) models for streamlining circular food production.
Expected results and effects
The project is expected to increase domestic self-sufficiency through the implementation of self-learning systems. Streamlined, circular food production has the potential to become a massive industry with enormous positive impact on welfare and the environment.
Planned approach and implementation
Preliminary study/report A structure for a quality-assured data topology is developed. The report will show how different data should be structured, handled and stored in order to easily digitize an industry. Pilot installations Pilot installation of a data warehouse with pre-processing that can identify deviations through ML. Prototype A prototype based on ML that can optimize various processes, for example resource or cost optimization, is developed.
