Farm to Table Meets Big Data Analytics | Erin Baumgartner | TEDxNatick

Our fridges are filled with items sourced from around the globe, but rarely local farms. Erin shows how she redirected her experience solving urban problems with big data analytics to bring fresh food from local farmers to your family dinner table. Erin Baumgartner and her husband co-founded Family Dinner to apply their expertise in big data analytics to connecting produce from local farms to families. Erin spent 11 years at MIT, most recently at the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society and as the Assistant Director of the MIT Senseable City Lab. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
