Australian Wool Innovation (AWI), in collaboration with neXtgen Agri Ltd and the University of Sydney will investigate the potential of applying artificial intelligence (AI) in the sheep and wool industry.

“This project will provide a proof of concept that semi-automated images captured and combined with machine learning techniques can be used to determine identification through facial recognition, wrinkle scores, face cover and live-weight in sheep,” Dr Littlejohn explained.

Mark Ferguson, neXtgen Agri project lead said the potential of this project lies in the possibility of remote and automatic weighing and identification of animals without extensive infrastructure.

“This project will also lay the foundation for new and innovative ways to assess traits in sheep without additional time and effort from farm managers,”Mr Ferguson said.

Results from the project are expected to be analysed mid-2019.
