• # 27 – AGRICULTURE 2.0

    He’s Looking at You, Bossy!

    Cainthus, a machine vision company based in Dublin, Ottawa, and San Francisco, has developed a breakthrough system that can identify cows from their faces. Its advanced sensor technology recognizes the unique facial characteristics of each animal. Use could increase efficiency on dairy farms.

    The technology can turn visual information into actionable eating habit data. It identifies cows that have stopped feeding and alerts the farm manager for follow-up. The system is suitable for large herds of more than 1000 cows.

    David Hunt, former corporate banker and co-founder of Cainthus, said the company is committed to digitizing agricultural practices.

    “Today we have 97% accuracy in ID on an individual image, but by sheer weight of analysis our ID accuracy is effectively 100%.”
