Wan Xi, a computer engineer working in Baidu, China, has created a AI Smart Shelter for cats who are sick outside their winter months.
It always maintains 27 degrees, is warm, airy and provides food and water. By using the smart camera’s face recognition function, it is possible to identify only 174 cats and enter registered cats. Settings can be managed through a smartphone.
In addition, Easy DL (Easy DL) can be used to detect all kinds of gingival inflammation, infection, and skin problems. It is possible to know whether a cat is sterilized or castrated. The data also allowed cats with diseases to be sent to nearby volunteers for better support.
There are about 40,000 stray cats in China. This kind of technique can not solve all the problems, but it seems to help a little less unfortunate cats. For more information, please click here .
