What is F.R.U.I.T.?
F.R.U.I.T. is an acronym meaning Food Resiliency Urban Infrastructure Tools.
F.R.U.I.T. is a set of analytical instruments developed for improving food availability, accessibility, and affordability and reducing food waste; thereby improving the economic viability of adopting urban agriculture as a sustainable local food production and distribution practice.
F.R.U.I.T. is essentially an Artificial Intelligence (AI) research & development accelerator and food security incubator.
At F.R.U.I.T.’s core, is a big data platform that has established a back-end set of computational algorithms that connects the dietary requirements of a sample population, with spatial opportunities of their urban environments and the food required to be consumed by minimizing food waste, accessibility issues, and affordability concerns. The applied combination of specialized data and a set of computational algorithms that assess the technological, political, economic, real estate and social impacts of urban agriculture to generate self-sufficient net-zero food-energy-water solutions for a specific site and/or target population.
Our work with F.R.U.I.T. is made possible through a collaboration with Studio James Brazil.
