  • The project aims to create a digital system, integrated by predictive models based on artificial intelligence, that allows predicting harvest volume, vine phenology, ripening monitoring, fruit reception scheduling and oenological operations.

He ANID Center Inria Chile, in a strategic collaboration with Viña Concha y Toro, and with the support of Corfo, launched the Vendimia 5.0 initiative, a pioneering project that marks a milestone in the fifth industrial revolution for the wine sector in Chile. This project has the objective of optimize productive and qualitative decisions of the grape harvest through a digital transformation that allows improving human-machine planning, which is especially relevant in a climate change scenario.

To carry out this project, the collaboration aims create a digital system that is integrated by predictive models based on artificial intelligence that allows predicting the harvest volume, the phenology of the vine, the monitoring of grape maturity and the programming of grape reception and oenological operations.

The initiative aims to strengthen the innovation ecosystem in Chile, at the regional and national level, with a significant investment in new technological capabilities and advanced human capital in the Maule region.

Inria, as a global leader in research in digital sciences and technologies and as coordinator of the research component of France’s National Strategy on Artificial Intelligence, sees this project as an opportunity to consolidate its presence and contribution in Chile. in an initiative that puts into practice the so-called Industrial Revolution 5.0, an evolutionary phase driven by the advanced integration of artificial intelligence and greater collaboration with humans. In this context, it stands out for significantly enhancing the capacity for human understanding of the results generated by machines.

This is a strategic project that we will develop with Viña Concha y Toro. It’s about a interdisciplinary and pioneering project in the application of explainable artificial intelligence for the adaptation of the winemaking process to the effects of climate change. With this we intend to strengthen the positioning of Chile and its wine industry not only at the regional level but at the global level, with a view to sustainable technological development and with humans at the center for a more optimal and resilient industry, added Nayat.

The agreement signed between Viña Concha y Toro and Inria Chile is for five years and involves a investment of $1.5 billion. Of the total, Viña Concha y Toro will finance $900 million, while the rest corresponds to a contribution from Corfo.
