Seminar explores big data and farming

A seminar on big data will be presented by the Indiana Agricultural Law Foundation Friday, Aug. 15. The seminar will cover big data’s growing importance in agriculture and its associated challenges and legal effects.

“Farmers have to balance the risk of giving out this information, how secure it is and who they’re going to share it with. But they also have to think about how can this help my operation, does it make me more profitable and then make the distinction between which is more important to them,” said IALF director John Shoup. “And I think with our program that we’ve put together we’re going to help them better understand the risks and legal implications.”

Big data refers to data whose scale, diversity and complexity require new systems to manage and extract value and knowledge from it. Attendees of the day-long event will hear from attorney Michelle Kaiser Bray about data privacy policy, while attorney Todd Janzen will speak about the legal aspects and uses of unmanned aerial vehicles. Dr. Kevin Price, a UAV technology representative from RoboFlight, will discuss the type of data the drones capture and the ways it can be used and shared. Representatives from The Climate Corp., Beck’s Hybrids and DuPont Pioneer have been invited to discuss their companies’ data privacy policies.

Indiana Farm Bureau is a sponsor of the workshop, which will be held at IFB’s main office in Indianapolis. The registration fee is $50 if registered by July 14. Registration increases to $75 after that date. Space is limited. Registration and details are available at www.inaglaw.org/bigdata.
