Powered by a unique combination of system science, advanced artificial intelligence, data inference, and entrepreneurial vision, CiBO was created to provide objective, scientifically-driven insights in support of agricultural scaling.
CiBO Technologies, a Flagship Pioneering Company, was founded in 2015 by Noubar Afeyan, Founder and CEO of Flagship Pioneering, Ignacio Martinez, General Partner at Flagship Pioneering, and Professor Bruno Basso, an internationally-recognized agricultural systems scientist and professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Michigan State University.
Infused with differentiated technologies, CiBO delivers high value, objective insights around farmland and its potential. With no dependence on the farmer or local data, CiBO derives unique field-level insights across the agriculture ecosystem. CiBO’s technology evaluates land potential using multiple layers of data, including — satellite, weather, soil, parcel records, and more — and combines it with proprietary AI and science-based simulation.
Simulation enhances data and inference capabilities to produce actionable insights about land productivity and potential. These insights are easily scaled from a single field to the entire US, enabling users to scale operations from a single farm to a portfolio of land. These innovative tools help with decision making for acquisition and sale, valuation, loans and risk assessment, capital improvements, sustainability practices, and commodity marketing.
