This webinar is ideal for those who have second thoughts about predictive analytics and wish to get a deeper understanding of the potential & benefits of food risk predictions.

In this live, online panel discussion, Prof. Chris Elliott guides us through the Food Safety world and invites the R&D expert Manos Karvounis (Research & Innovation Manager at Agroknow) and the regulatory expert Yvonne Pfeifer (Global Data Services Lead at SGS) to explore the future of Food Risk Predictions.

This session aims to focus on:

  • Defining how AI can assist food safety risk predictions and the challenges involved

  • Examining prediction models and regulatory change anticipations in the context of EFRA project

  • Exploring the current state of: AI powered forecasting models of FOODAKAI & the regulatory features of Digicomply

A live Q&A will follow on the topic and discussion around what to anticipate regarding Food Risk Predictions landscape in the near future.


In this webinar we plan on covering the following:

  • • Define the food risk predictions

  • Debate the feasibility of food risk predictions

  • Examine the data requirements and constraints

  • Investigate the regulatory landscape and expectations

  • Explore the future of food risk predictions

  • Plus, any other questions that will be posed by the audience in real time during the Q&A.
