What kind of innovations and innovation pathways are we looking at?
Innovations over the years have made it possible to collect and document data in a resource efficient manner. These include IVRS based data collection that provides a means to collect last mile data, satellite augmented data collection that uses image recognition, artificial intelligence and machine learning that can read and digitize various formats of data, behaviour change trainings among farmers coupled with non-monetary incentives, and re-designing the farmer field book in favour of self-reporting.
We are looking for the next big innovation that can further improve the way the BCI program facilitates data collection and documentation.
Your innovation may follow one (or more) of the pathways mentioned below:
- Capturing only a sub-set of indicators if other indicators can be derived based on the set collected.
- Capturing all indicators by using technology advancements. (i.e., AI, Satellite augmented data capture)
- Capturing data manually by enabling self-reporting by farmers. (i.e., IVRS)
- Capturing data more efficiently through field facilitators. (i.e., route optimization, FF allocation to more cost intensive regions)
Note: This list of pathways above remains non-exhaustive and illustrative.
