Imagine being able to keep track of data on every member of your herd.

OneCup AI’s Bovine Expert Tracking and Surveillance, or BETSY for short, uses facial recognition to first identify livestock, then monitor them.

“After she identifies those animals, she begins to track a number of different things about those animals for health monitoring, movement tracking, and just some overall metrics based on your herd,” says Mokah Shmiegelsky, CEO of OneCup AI.

The technology tracks all animals within the visual plane, which is fortunate with cattle as they move quite frequently, and BETSY is constantly identifying animals within her plane of vision, says Shmigelsky.

The information that’s collected gets processed, and BETSY then runs several AI algorithms on the information, to bring up data analytics. The information is presented in an easy-to-use, web-based portal for livestock producers.

Outliers are flagged, and that information is sent through the portal — for example, an animal that isn’t drinking enough water, or is drinking too much.

Videos are saved in the portal, so producers can go back and look at footage of their herd. There’s also a live feed option.

The number one selling feature? The ability to automatically collect information on whole herds.

As for rural connectivity and broadband issues, OneCup AI is working on in-house solutions for low upload speeds.
