Being ethical to be revolutionary: the agriculture challenge in the AI era

From yield prediction to resource optimisation, artificial intelligence is revolutionising farming practices. Yet, in the shadow of financial and environmental benefits, some unseen concerns might restrain its potential: agriculture at the crossroads of increased productivity and power concentration

From burden to asset: turning big emitters into energy and flexibility suppliers

So-called “energy-intensive industries” account for 25% of global CO2 emissions. Yet, this burden can be turned into an asset for the grid and the Planet. Crucial for this change of paradigm is “flexibility”: a novel bottom-up approach promising to decarbonise and transform them into energy and stability providers

Betting on technology to repopulate rural areas: when AI meets agriculture and sustainability

Producing more with less: AI-powered solutions are revolutionising agriculture. But financial and environmental benefits are only the tip of the iceberg. Some rural areas are also betting on artificial intelligence to counter depopulation: “Technology is the way to go. If we miss this opportunity, we’ll be stuck in the past”

Old concepts, new paradigms: the business model challenge in the smart city era

How to monetise environmental benefits? What’s the value of reducing traffic and emissions? Economic savings and traditional methods are not enough: to calculate the profitability of smart and sustainable cities, we need to rethink the concept of business model.
