Title: Commercialization and the using of Artificial Intelligence in the Identification and Monitoring of Livestock

Abstract: OneCup AI uses computer vision to uniquely identify and monitor livestock in rural locations. The development of this technology includes solving problems that don’t occur in other AI & ML industries as we also need to consider lack of connectivity, outdoor installation and the unpredictability of livestock. This traditional sector is slow to adopt new technologies due to a lack of knowledge as to how these proposed systems work and what ROI they can provide. As well, new technology can often be cost-prohibitive to a producer operating on slim margins. OneCup’s AI system BETSY, or Bovine Expert Tracking and Surveillance not only meets the easy to use requirements of a rancher but does so with state of the art machine and deep learning. We bring to the table a novel use of AI in a traditional industry such as livestock management. Developing the system to utilize all the new technology available to us, we leverage that and listen to producers to determine the best future functionality of BETSY.
