Agriculture

The SHERPA project explores deeper insights into the use of Smart information systems (SIS).
SIS (Big Data and artificial intelligence) are used in the agricultural industry to help the planting, seeding, and harvesting of crops, as well as farm management, plant and livestock illness and disease detection. However, the use of agricultural SIS may create a number of ethical concerns.

The aim of this case study is to identify ethical issues that may appear in practice in an agricultural organisation that are not covered in the literature; whether or not they face the same issues discussed in literature as in practice; and if there are policies and procedures set in place for addressing these concerns.

Read the full case studies to get an understanding of real world applications of SIS technologies and the potential ethical issues that are being dealt with. https://www.project-sherpa.eu/category/case-studies/

The SHERPA project has received funding under the European Union’s H2020 research and innovation programme, grant agreement No. 786641.
