Artificial intelligence in the Food Industry

The growth of the planet’s population requires the application of innovative technological solutions for its food supply. Artificial intelligence is perceived as a strategic factor for increasing productivity, efficiency and innovation in a number of sectors, including the food industry. This event will explore how Artificial Intelligence is poised to transform the food industry, shedding light on the expanding role of AI across the agrifood system, with an emphasis on food manufacturing. The presentation will discuss the historical context of AI, explain the fundamental concepts underpinning this transformative technology, and share a series of case studies on companies incorporating AI into their business operations.

This is a face-to-face event in Shepparton, VIC. Register now to secure your spot in this topical discussion!

Our expert speaker is:

Dr Jordan Pennells, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at CSIRO

Jordan holds dual degrees in Chemical Engineering and Evolutionary Genetics after graduating from the University of Queensland in 2017. His PhD was conferred from the University of Queensland in 2022 with a thesis entitled "Sorghum as a Novel Biomass for the Sustainable Production of Cellulose Nanofibres", which presented an inquiry into quality, sustainability, and statistical variability in biomass-based materials engineering. Now at CSIRO, Jordan is at the interface between food research and industrial production, focusing on the material transformation that occurs during twin-screw extrusion to generate a range of different food products, including plant-based meat. His postdoctoral research project revolves around the significant challenge of predicting food extrusion outcomes to streamline industrial production, with the broader goal of enabling a deeper mechanistic understanding of the food extrusion process.

The registration price also includes canapes and refreshments.

Thank you to NorVicFoods and The University of Melbourne for partnering with this regional event.
