This topic presents the macro-design of SPA that will surely appear in the coming years and also the future technological trends in SPA applied to viticulture and arable crops. A vision of the future of SPA is presented in three layers:
i) human intelligence (related to soil, plants, climate, pests, diseases, environment, food production, fibre and energy) on top;
ii) artificial intelligence (related to hardware, communications, data) in the middle;
iii) and again human intelligence on the bottom (consumers, business models, transparency, food traceability).
“Big Data” challenges are discussed regarding the specific needs of agriculture. The technological groups identified in a Foresight Analysis report are
discussed and the future technological trends on arable crops and vineyards are presented.
In this topic, materials include a slide presentation, a document text and the Foresight Analysis report.
