Will the ‘sheep’ awaken?
FACIAL RECOGNITION TRIAL
The Australian sheep industry is about to witness a major technological trial, as AI company Genesmith gears up to launch its “innovative” sheep facial recognition trial.
The company promises to “revolutionise sheep management”, using AI to identify a flock’s most productive ewes and, in turn, “improve their bloodlines”.
Genesmith is a New Zealand company with a mission “to harness the power of technology to improve livestock management and productivity”.
They focus on research and development and are reportedly pioneers in animal facial recognition. Their advanced system uses algorithms and machine learning to identify individual sheep.
The ‘highly anticipated trial’ is set to take place in Australia later this year, aiming to showcase the potential of facial recognition technology in real-world farming situations.
The company says the technology could detect and identify animals from more than 100 metres away and that the camera could scan 360 degrees around a paddock, “learning the features of the sheep”.
“One camera or a couple of cameras can handle lots of animals compared to having to put one thing on individual animals, which works beautifully with cattle but the price point is a bit steep with sheep,” said Genesmith Director Dr. Mark Ferguson,
“The idea is to make sure it’s practical and that the technology really will change the game.”
“We have no interest in making a technology that doesn’t serve farmers,” he continued.
With rapid developments in technology and the ‘enthusiastic’ adoption of on-farm tech, it will be interesting to see if AI facial recognition is the way of the future for sheep farmers.
Just like it will be on the human flock of ‘sheep’ over the next few decades.
We know the bio-fascists like to test on animals in a bid to ‘efficiently’ move products to humans, but there is a funny irony to the fact the ‘sheep’ are being monitored with facial recognition.
Especially when the sheeple, the sleeping masses, are also being herded into a similar track-and-trace plantation with the exact same types of capabilities.
For years, state and federal governments have been pushing to introduce a national facial recognition database that contains all driver’s licenses and passports of millions of Aussies.
Part of this national system of identification will be underpinned by a digital identity framework (delivered through myGov for essential government services), which will centralise these data points.
This mass spying system isn’t just contained to government plans either, with businesses all across Australia now adopting the invasive technology under the guise of ‘safety and security’.
Just like the sheep in this new trial, the human farm smiles and waves to the cameras!
