Know the Background of Big Data and How It Has Been Used To Enhance Food Safety


The term “Big Data” has become common usage in different sectors from monitoring climate change through to marketing a new cereal. Big data is a broad term that refers to large data sets that are too complex to process using commonly available processing power. Not so many years ago, processing of Big Data was restricted to super computers but with advances in computing power has now become widely available. In parallel, advances in data storage and management along with advances in techniques such as next generation sequencing, have merged to provide enabling technology that can be applied in the Big Data area. The first instance of applying Big Data in main stream was when a marketing tool used it, where consumer purchased could be tracked. It was somewhat inevitable the Big Data would diffuse through to the area of food safety although at present it is technology looking for applications.

Join this session by expert speaker Keith Warriner to understand the background of Big Data and how has the approach been used to enhance food safety. You will get various examples which will include genome sequencing, epidemiology, microecology, early outbreak detection, food safety management, modelling and spectral analysis. These opportunities and implications in the Big Data arena will be discussed.

Session Highlights:

  • Big Data – history and definition
  • Big Data’s enabling technologies
  • Big Data in the food sector – overview of applications
  • Application of Big Data in predicting, detection and tracing foodborne illness outbreaks
  • Microecology in predicting human pathogen behavior
  • Big Data integration of food safety management systems
  • Spectral imaging analysis applications for tracking contamination at the farm level
  • Applications of whole genome sequencing to enhance food safety
  • Future directions and opportunities in the Big Data food safety arena.
