5 cool things we learned in October


October was a busy month, not only for Agro-Know, but also for our colleagues – this was depicted in the number of blog posts that we shared with you; a total of thirteen (13!) posts on what Agro-Know and our friends are doing!

So what were the five coolest things we learned in October?

  1. There are 5 Vs in Big Data, but what matters in agri-food Big Data is the variety.
  2. Food Safety is one of the hottest topics nowadays – and we are keeping our eyes on it. Same goes for IBM and Mars.
  3. The Open Access Week led to a huge number of related activities globally; we had our (small) share in that.
  4. Agriculture goes open source – under the umbrella of the MIT Media Lab.
  5. Working with big data is not always meaningful; especially when you miss the context.

Of course we learned (so you learned, too!) many more things but this is supposed to be a Top-5 list, so we had to keep it short!
