Data science is an interdisciplinary scientific field dealing with the management, extraction and analysis of data in order to acquire knowledge.
The Data Science field combines statistical and optimization methods, and Machine Learning algorithms, while often uses Big Data in order to develop models that are able to make smart predictions and sort the data. NEUROPUBLIC uses Data Science methods and tools of cutting-edge technology in the fields of Geo-Informatics and Artificial Intelligence.
Specifically in Agriculture, Satellite Remote Sensing combined with tools provided by Data Science are used to predict the expected crop efficiency and to determine the amount that will be harvested under specific conditions, as well as to identify crops and map them.
NEUROPUBLIC has developed an Informatics system that maps different crops in Greece and generates statistical data for their geographical distribution.
NEUROPUBLIC develops statistical analysis and machine learning models with the aim to develop “smart” applications for the agricultural sector. Furthermore, it utilizes a big volume of satellite images provided by the European Space Agency (E.S.A.), in order to provide farmers and Public Agencies with smart observations and solutions. Particularly, these methods utilize full spectrum multidimensional data/images including spatial and temporal dimensions.
Farmers and Agronomists
NEUROPUBLIC innovates in this field too, as the integrated Informatics system we have developed that monitors the crops cultivated at parcel level provides irrigation, plant protection and fertilization advice to farmers and agronomists.
The integrated Informatics system is addressed to organizations performing payments and controls according to European Union’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). It provides the possibility to monitor the agricultural land falling under their responsibility and to confirm the accuracy of producers’ data on two main points:
Monitoring and control of the correct geographical and spatial position of the declared parcel.
Confirmation of the declared crops per parcel.
The system provides the possibility for the aforementioned controls in a modern, mass and automated way, in large scale and with minimal human intervention.
