Big data is characterized by its very varied nature and origin. Moreover, they are available quickly and in large quantities. Wageningen Livestock Research contributes to the delivery and interpretation of data from livestock farming.
Challenge to come to tools
It is a scientific challenge to discover connections in the enormous pool of data. And to use that data in the further development of useful tools for the livestock sector, among others.
Knowledge about livestock farming
To achieve this, domain, math and computer knowledge is required. Big data is a spearhead of Wageningen University & Research. Wageningen Livestock Research focuses on domain knowledge with regard to animal husbandry.
