CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture Announces Inspire Challenges

The CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture announces Inspire Challenges, an initiative to encourage partners, universities, and others to use CGIAR data to create pilot opportunities that scale. Through the Challenges, the Platform seeks to show the power of big data analytics and ICTs to provide unprecedented multi-disciplinary data to researchers, delivering actionable information to farmers and inspiring others to use big data to create impact.
