EXKAL, as a leading supplier in the commercial refrigeration sector, is looking to solve the problem of food waste in supermarkets. In collaboration with GFT we will present an innovative solution at this year’s IOT Solutions World Congress (IOTSWC). Minimising food waste is one of the Sustainable Development Goals set out in the 2030 Agenda, to be held at the Fira Barcelona from May 10 to 12.

The solution we will present, supported by the main leading technologies on the market, uses artificial intelligence to determine the product located on the shelf and through Machine Learning algorithms provide a price in real time. This taking into account its condition, expiry date and remaining quantity. This price is processed using the power of the Google Cloud platform allowing instantaneous adjustments.

This way, it will be possible to respond to the issues of adjusting the price of a product in a changing environment. This dynamism will allow supermarkets, in addition to reducing the level of food waste, to respond in real time to factors such as cuts in the supply chain or price escalation due to external conditions.

You can find us at Stand TB10 – Testbeds Area – Hall 4.

Here we leave you an explanatory video of the initiative.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Week

The LuzIA Foundation is an example of public-private collaboration whose objective is for Navarran society to achieve a degree of knowledge, development and implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) ecosystems equivalent to those achieved with renewable energies. Exkal has been part of its start-up since its inception, as part of its commitment to innovation and technological development.

The Minister of Education of the Government of Navarre, Carlos Gimeno, attended this Monday the presentation of the Artificial Intelligence Week, organized by the LuzIA Foundation and which the Liceo Monjardín center, in Pamplona, ​​hosts from today until the next 28 from January. This initiative will also be developed at the Zizur secondary school as well as at the El Molino and Torre Monreal special education centers (CEE), the latter in Tudela, in the first quarter of the year. Its promoters also hope that this experience will reach a dozen centers distributed throughout the Autonomous Community in the second quarter, and “as many as possible”, already from October.

Among other activities, this program includes an exhibition, training sessions of a technical, practical, ethical and programming nature, informative talks for parents, as well as training in Artificial Intelligence (AI) for trainers. The contents will be taught by industrial engineering students and workers from the companies that are part of LuzIA Foundation (Helphone, iAR, ARPA Abogados Consultores, EXKAL, das-Nano and veri-das).

We will continue to tell you about progress in this area of ​​growth and importance for us, and for the innovation ecosystem in Navarre.
