How can the AI and ML databases help people to directly help others, yet also connect logistics centralized with farmers, nonprofits, and businesses to provide people food with the least waste?
Kenny Chen
01:28:35
Innovation communities often focus disproportionately on “drivers of change,” but ignore “anchors of inertia” - in that they neglect the systems and incentive structures that maintain the status quo. What anchors and norms do you think will be most critical for us to overcome to reach a sustainable, circular, and/or equitable food economy?

Hi Christina, AI and subfields of AI including ML can solve the issue you mentioned about using internet of things (IOTs).

The Covid 19 has broken the supply chain ie. Meat in the US but also the limited foreign labourers for the harvest
Vasu Konduru
01:33:51
can you share any most recent AI enabled project which is helping Non Profit Food banks in serving humanity especially Developing nations like India ?
Glenn McKnight
01:34:54
The idea of Plant based alternatives is not realistic
Glenn McKnight

When Trump used a War measures act to keep the slaughter houses open illustrates their priorities to the voters
Glenn McKnight
01:37:56
Tons of food wasted is a major issue
Justin Ciampa
01:37:58
How can AI or other methods focus on nutrition, sustainability, biodiversity, and closer proximity and more responsivity to need rather than just quantity of food?
Justin Ciampa
01:42:45
How can AI help the UN, nations, non-profits, food banks etc. preserve food that is being wasted like milk that is being dumped?
Glenn McKnight
01:43:27
<question> Do we have some best practice case studies to share vs theory?>
Glenn McKnight
01:49:29
Again i am looking for links instead abstract ramblings

@Andy Manel There was a short book and a presentation created by a few Designers and AI experts at IBM on AI and Design Thinking. One of the Authors was Adam Cutler and I think he summarized this on a very long post on LinkedIn.

IBM has now developed an interactive online course for Enterprise AI Designers and Developers.
Glenn McKnight

We just launched a 1 million COVID 19 disaster fund and this may fit with ISOC Foundation

@Glenn - start here: https://www.ibm.com/design/thinking/page/badges/ai
Bob Schloss

@Glenn - They say you can take yourself through their approach in 3 hours, starting here: https://www.ibm.com/design/thinking/page/courses/AI_Essentials
Bob Schloss
01:59:18
@Glenn - but this assumes you already know the basics, which they cover in more introductory courses, such as https://www.ibm.com/design/thinking/page/courses/Practitioner
Bob Schloss

@Glenn - this page says that for a limited period of time, IBM is not charging to take their Design Thinking online courses. https://www.ibm.com/design/thinking/page/faq
