Blog | Energy crisis: anticipating with algorithms
Many companies have been hit hard by the soaring energy prices caused by the war in Ukraine and the energy transition. This requires continuous consideration of crop data, weather data and costs. Rudolf de Vetten describes in his blog how algorithms are able to make these trade-offs continuously and perform the right actions 24/7. This way growers can achieve optimal control of the climate much more precisely per department, resulting in significantly less energy waste.
Blog ‘ Who decides?’
Algorithms determine our daily lives increasingly: they guide your choice of music, interests, the job vacancies you see and what you order for dinner. It’s all very convenient, but is it desirable? In the blog of Rudolf de Vetten, Chief Product Officer, he explains the way in which Blue Radix uses the algorithms. That’s really different. We take the grower’s unique crop strategy as a starting point. That results in a solution that allows growers to determine the direction and what is important.
