Modern agriculture was broken long before pandemics, wars, supply chain disruptions and fertilizer shortages. Regenerative agriculture can fix that, and data can help.

What could a multi-national corporation like Unilever and an environmental leader and activist like Vandana Shiva possibly have in common?

Shiva has a history of actively opposing the commodification and appropriation of natural resources for the benefit of corporate interests. Unilever is at the heart of the international corporate web.

Shiva, a prolific author, just published her latest book: "Agroecology and Regenerative Agriculture: Sustainable Solutions for Hunger, Poverty, and Climate Change". 

Unilever, whose products need around 4 million hectares of land to grow the raw materials for, recently published a new set of regenerative agriculture principles.

There has to be something about regenerative agriculture. Let's take a look at what it is and why it's important, what the data tells us about it, and how analytics and AI may help going forward.

Orchestrate all the Things podcast: Connecting the Dots with George Anadiotis

I've got tech, data, and media, and i'm not afraid to use them.

My name is George Anadiotis, and i am a writer, a planner and a doer. I am an Onalytica Top 100 Influencer in Big Data and Cloud, a Knowledge Graph expert, and a VentureBeat and ZDNet contributor, among other things.

Linked Data Orchestration is my brand. This podcast is where i share my work, as well as conversations with people who bring interesting news and views to the table.

I've hosted from the likes of Gary Marcus and Andrew Ng to emerging thinkers and innovators across multiple domains. To subscribe to the Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music and more, hit the Subscribe button!

Some might call this futurism; let's just say it's connecting the dots.

Coming from a technology background, i've had the chance to learn to play many instruments on the way to becoming a one man band and an orchestrator.

Before starting a career as an analyst and journalist, i served Fortune 500, startups and NGOs as a consultant, built and managed projects, products and teams of all sizes and shapes, and got involved in award-winning research. I still try to do that stuff as much as possible.
