We use Big Data to develop efficient and effective solutions for the challenges and problems facing agriculture in Africa.
Big Data and technological advancements continue to evolve rapidly, providing the opportunity for new ways of alleviating global hunger and poverty using data-driven solutions. Eagmark provides an Agricultural platform that utilizes Big Data to accelerate and enhance agricultural research.
Advancements in global agriculture are progressively driven by data and information, coupled with powerful computing, machine learning and communication systems that have led to more adaptive, profitable and precise farming techniques.
Digital innovations such as artificial intelligence, robotics and sensor technologies have greatly contributed to advanced farming and agricultural practices.
The Eagmark Big Data Platform
In our hands, data is intelligence and we are using it to make invaluable decisions when planning and implementing projects.
Once fully established, the Eagmark Big Data Platform will focus on sharing data with researchers, becoming an intermediary for active advancement of data-driven agricultural development projects and expansion of the agricultural research base.
The Alliance for Big Data brings together experts and partners from Kenya and beyond to generate ideas that address the agricultural challenges in the developing world. The partners are from both public and private domains, working across different fields spanning economics, agronomy, food security, analytics, ICT, research, and so on.
