In this episode of #LØRN, Silvija speaks to entrepreneur and Co-Founder of Völur, Adrian Diaz. Adrian believes that artificial intelligence can be used in many new and innovative ways within the meat industry to ensure a better and more sustainable industry. In this episode, you learn all about the whole food chain, from what goes on on the farm right up until the meat is on store shelves, and how we can use AI to improve this process.
What does your organization sell, and why do people buy from you?
Völur provides a SaaS powered by AI. The goal is to enable a more sustainable and optimized meat industry. We work really close to the customer to define all their business rules, the know-hows, to understand their data, how everything is connected with everything else, and to feel their pains.
What exactly motivates you in this assignment?
As you might already know, we work with an industry that has a huge impact in the total CO2 footprint globally, around 14.5% every year. We have given the opportunity to apply AI into our customers’ value chain and make a contribution to bring those numbers down.
Are there any interesting dilemmas?
We have found out that to do so you need to communicate and transmit your passion and your vision properly. You must demonstrate it is feasible to apply AI to their specific problems by showing the numbers. It is through this process of building trust that they can understand how the industry can become more sustainable and benefit all the players within through applying AI.
