Chiara Petrioli is Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Rome La Sapienza, Founder and Director WSense Srl.
Roberto Pastres is Associate Professor of Ecology at the Department of Environmental Sciences, Computer Science and Statistics, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. His expertise concerns the development of modeling tools to simulate the direct and indirect environmental impacts of aquaculture and the development of predictive models to make farm management more sustainable. He has recently coordinated the H2020 project “GAIN” – Green Aquaculture Intensification in Europe.
Aquaculture 4.0: technologies and innovations
Big Data in aquaculture: the GAIN Information Management System
The development of a prototype of an information management system for the implementation of precision aquaculture was one of the main outputs of the H2020 project GAIN – Green Aquaculture Intensification in Europe. The system is made up of a centralized hub and some peripheral nodes. The first one collects and harmonizes data harvestable from web portals and data at farms, concerning both environmental variables and fish/shellfish growth and welfare. These “Big Data” are processed by the nodes using Artificial Intelligence and mechanistic models, thus sending to farmers information for improving their management decisions.
