Using artificial intelligence to assess FAO's knowledge base on the technology accelerator

Corporate Author:

Harnessing science, technology and innovation (STI) is key to meeting the aspirations of efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agrifood systems and leveraging emerging opportunities to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The FAO Strategic Framework 2022-2031 identifies STI as having enormous transformative potential and underlines the potential of emerging technologies. It also recognises that STI can present substantial risks, such as reinforcing inequality and market concentration, or contributing to the degradation of natural resources. As one of four accelerators identified by the FAO Strategic Framework 2022-2031, technology is expected to 'accelerate impact while minimizing trade-offs'.This report examines the technology accelerator trends across publicly available FAO knowledge reports, technical guidance and convening summaries. Leveraging AI-assisted classification of nearly 40 000 documents, this report offers a bird's-eye perspective of six types of technology - digital technologies, bio-technologies, mechanisation, irrigation technologies, renewable energy technologies and food processing technologies - as well as high-level trends for outcomes and social and demographic details about the communities using these technologies
