Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in food safety

The majority of Big Data applications requires dealing with large volumes, diverse sources and forms of data, ranging from highly structured to unstructured data, which is due to the rise in the sharing and availability of data. To deal with this complexity, new tools are needed to automatically extract process, integrate, visualize and organize this data into both human and machine readable summaries. Wageningen Food Safety Research is exploring the application of Artificial intelligence (AI) and Big Data technologies in food safety to keep and make food safe. Progress in these areas will allow us to greatly improve our knowledge in AI and Big Data, and will help us to utilise better the available data for the generation of knowledge.
