为了保护消费者健康并降低食源事件的风险,布勒最近推出了免费增值服务 safefood.ai,以创建有关食品安全相关事件的更多情报,例如产品召回、食源疾病爆发或欺诈活动。

该服务持续监控数千个来源,包括官方数据库、社交媒体、新闻和其他来源,并提醒用户任何与食源疾病爆发、产品召回或食品欺诈相关的证据。

参赛者将面临创建算法的挑战,这些算法能够以高相关性和高精度生成已发现食品安全事件的自动摘要。

参赛者的模型必须分析布勒提供的大量数据,这些数据来自数十个来源。随着竞争的进行,参与者将能够在新数据上测试他们的算法并优化他们的模型,以便在发现相关的食品安全事件时更加准确。

“食品安全是当今我们行业面临的主要挑战之一。布勒正在加紧收集最优秀的人才,并利用最先进的技术来检测,理解并采取价值链上所有可能的威胁。数据是该战略的核心部分。通过这种合作的A.I挑战,我们希望吸引新的数据专家来思考食品行业的挑战,并最终联合起来创造改善人类生活的实用工具。“布勒的数字官员 Stuart Bashford 说。

“亚洲必将成为世界的A.I.强国。在以往的 Future Food Asia 版本中,我们看到越来越多的区域 agrifoodtech 创业公司利用这项技术。更进一步,我们很高兴与各自领域的领导者合作,并以最具体的方式展示创新越来越多地处于多学科的十字路口。 Future Food Asia 旨在鼓励更多的人才将他们的能力应用于我们这个时代最有意义的挑战之一,即食物的未来。“ ID Capital 的创始人兼首席执行官Isabelle Decitre说。

“阿里云分享了开发解决方案的愿景,这些解决方案可以解决全球关注的现实问题。本次比赛是首次在中国以外的亚太地区举办的阿里云天池竞赛,也是全球首个迎合农业食品行业的竞赛。在目前的天池社区,有来自 93 个国家和地区的 270,000 多名开发人员和科学家。通过竞争,天池汇集了来自世界各地的专家智慧,并利用阿里云智能解决方案的专业知识,帮助不同行业的实体应对现实挑战。“新加坡区域经理 Leon Chen 表示。

Launch of the first global AI competition for food safety

Bühler, ID Capital and Alibaba Cloud to Co-Organise AI Contest to Address Food Safety Challenges

The first global AI competition for food safety aims to attract leading experts to create innovative and intelligent solutions to discover and auto-summarize food-safety-related events. Winners of the competition will present at the Future Food Asia 2019 event.

February 28, 2019 4:00 PM Singapore Time

UZWIL, Switzerland, SINGAPORE and HANZHOU, China – Bühler and ID Capital, together with Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of Alibaba Group, today announced at a press conference in Singapore the launch of their co-organised Food Safety Challenge. AI experts from around the world will be invited to compete through Tianchi, Alibaba Cloud’s global big data crowd intelligence platform, to develop solutions to food-safety related events such as product recalls, foodborne outbreaks or fraudulent activity.

Home to a half of the world’s population, Asia has the highest health burden from foodborne diseases. In the South-East Asia region alone, foodborne diseases are responsible for 150 million illnesses and 175,000 deaths annually. [Source: WHO].

In order to protect consumer health and lower the risk of foodborne incidents, Bühler has recently launched the freemium service safefood.ai to create additional intelligence on food-safety related events such as product recalls, foodborne outbreaks or fraudulent activity. The service continuously monitors thousands of sources, including official databases, social media, news and others, and alerts users about any evidence related to foodborne outbreaks, product recalls or food fraud.

The contestants will be challenged to create algorithms that can generate automated summaries of discovered food safety incidents at both high relevancy and great precision. Contestants’ models will have to analyze large sets of data provided by Bühler which have been aggregated from dozens of sources. As the competition will be progressing, participants will be able to test their algorithms on new data and optimize their models to reach better accuracy at spotting relevant food safety events.

The team adjudged as the best solution will win a First Prize of US$ 10,000 from Bühler. There will also be two Second Prizes of US$2,500 as well as three Third Prizes which are internship opportunities at Bühler Singapore.

“Food safety is one of the major challenges faced by our industry today. Bühler is stepping up to gather the best talents and leverage the most advanced technologies to detect, understand and act on all possible threats along the value chain. Data is the central piece of this strategy. With this collaborative A.I challenge, we want to draw new data specialists to think about food industry challenges and ultimately join forces to create practical tools to improve human lives.” said Stuart Bashford, Digital Officer of Bühler.

“Asia is bound to become the world’s A.I. powerhouse. In the past editions of Future Food Asia we have seen a growing number of regional agrifoodtech startups leveraging this technology. Going one step further it is our great pleasure to collaborate with leaders in their respective fields and demonstrate in the most concrete manner that innovation increasingly lies at the crossroads of multiple disciplines. Future Food Asia aims at encouraging a wider pool of talents to apply their capabilities to one of the most meaningful challenges of our times, the Future of Food.” said Isabelle Decitre, Founder & CEO, ID Capital.

“Alibaba Cloud shares a vision to develop solutions that can solve real-life problems of global interest. This contest be the first Alibaba Cloud’s Tianchi competition hosted in Asia outside China, and the first worldwide catering to the agrifood sector. Within the current Tianchi community, there are more than 270,000 developers and scientists from 93 countries and regions. Through competitions, Tianchi pools the wisdom of experts from around the world and leverages the expertise of the Alibaba Cloud Intelligence solutions to help entities in different sectors address real-world challenges.” said Leon Chen, Country Manager Singapore, Alibaba Cloud.
