9) Online training course on "Innovation and The New Normal: How to Make Way in a Changed World"
Date: 24, 26 November, 1 & 3 December 2020
Course Overview:
Innovation is a word we hear so often these days. To many of us it conveys a kind of a magic bullet. A way out of all kinds of dead-ends - corporate, technological or social. It is true that at its very core Innovation means “doing things differently” and there are case studies galore about innovation success that we see disrupting markets and impacting millions of lives.
People ask, “is there a science to Innovation success?” “Is there a formula that churns our innovative products and services? If it were, wouldn’t it be just great?” The truth is, Innovation happens around us all the time. It is often subliminal. In fact, the best innovations are the ones we don’t see coming, and yet they change our lives. Innovation is part genius, part tool. To learn to innovate is to learn to spot signs from a new whole new perspective.
 
This course unpacks Innovation as a practical concept that you can put to use. Not only to think your way around problems, but to enter a whole new way of thinking.

11) Online training course on "AI in Agriculture and Food Supply"
Date: 30 November - 11 December 2020

Background

The usual agricultural practices will not be able to feed the World, as demand for agricultural products increases while agricultural land remains limited. In many ways today’s agricultural practices are inefficient, with irrigation wasting an estimated 80-90% of the water used and about 40% of farms globally overuse fertilizers and chemicals, leading to harmful effects on soil and water quality, and consequently yield per unit area. Digital Technologies (DTs) can tackle many food production and distribution challenges, such as low productivity, high transaction costs, limited use of inputs and minimal commercialization. Keeping in mind that the Fourth Industrial Revolution (i.e., emergence of ICT or DTs) is behind the disruption in all sectors and industries, agriculture, one of the oldest industries in human history, is also evolving more rapidly than ever. Smart farming technology is a technological solution that aims to create highly added value by integrating existing agricultural technologies with cutting-edge ICT solutions including Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Drone Technology. AIT Extension Program on Digital Disruption in Agriculture and Food Industry will be a set of independent as well as interconnected training courses (online, face2face, blended), which have been designed to equip you with better understanding, required knowledge and skills on Digital Disruption in Agriculture & Food Industry.
