ResoluteAI Partnership Works to Fight Food Shortages of Climate Change

August 21, 2019

An alarming New York Times article reports that climate change is projected to unleash powerful weather events and conditions that will disrupt our collective human culture. The article, based on a recent United Nations report, addresses how climate change will cause a scarcity of land and water resources that will put immense pressure on food production and amplify the risk of mass migration -- contributing to an unprecedented scope of world hunger challenges.“Already, more than 10 percent of the world’s population remains undernourished,” the UN report states, “and some authors of the report warned in interviews that food shortages could lead to an increase in cross-border migration.” Furthermore, the UN claims the window to repair the effects and threats of climate change is “closing rapidly,” and cautions that a half-billion people live in places that are becoming deserts, with soil losses occurring 10 to 100 times faster than it forms.

Collaborating for the Common Good

ResoluteAI, a powerful resource for scientists, innovators, and researchers across the globe, realized that scientists combating climate change could utilize its all-inclusive search and analytics platform to develop solutions. With vast amounts of important data on climate change stored in siloed industries, businesses, and government organizations around the world, ResoluteAI plays an integral role in arming scientists with the information they need to mitigate climate change, and perhaps save countless lives.

“ResoluteAI contacted our company to build new connections and create new partner institutions and technologies,” explains Johnathan Campbell Head of Partnerships & Technology Scouting at Syngenta, a forward-focused agriculture company dedicated to improving global food security by enabling millions of farmers to make better use of available resources. “ResoluteAI revealed crop protection technologies that we wouldn’t have seen found otherwise.”

Fighting Climate Change with Innovation

Together ResoluteAI and Syngenta identified numerous emerging agricultural innovations to address the needs of a growing world population. Syngenta was able to use ResoluteAI’s state-of-the-art machine and deep learning algorithms to drive their research and discovery efforts. ResoluteAI empowered Syngenta’s teams with turnkey data products and search engine solutions such as data visualization, AI-automated classification, and semantic search functionalities.

As a result, Syngenta identified live technology transfer offers across thousands of research entities. With search results including invention disclosures, patent data, and contacts for inquiry and deal-making, Syngenta identified and engaged the right people, partners, and resources for their critical mission. Syngenta’s work will help a new generation of farmers provide for a new generation of people in a new, and unprecedented world.
