Facial recognition technology monitors well-being of pigs

Facial recognition allows growers to monitor pigs from time to time.

To further monitor pigs well-being, researchers from Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) indulge in a study of facial recognition technology.

After developing the facial recognition technology, researchers declare its 97% accuracy in identifying pigs from time to time. Then, a team from the University of West England develops algorithms that can scan images and distinguish facial features of each pig.

Furthermore, this combined technology allows growers in large farm operations to monitor animal health and well-being. It will also assess the farm environment and how it affects the health of each pig.
