Mirabeau is currently experimenting with various cognitive services like text-, speech-, and image recognition. We believe that A.I. will have an even bigger impact in our lives than the smart phone revolution has. This research should lead to real world experience and examples for various A.I. services. One experiment puts (real time) visual pattern recognition to the test with cows.
Recognizing cows in an AR application.
This month one of our researchers took the pattern recognition services to task to find out how they stack up against each other. To make it fun and manageable we posed this question:
“Can we make cloud services recognize cows? If so, can they recognize individual cows by their unique patterns on their fur and their facial ratios?”
This particular experiment could proof very useful for example for authorities tasked with counting the number of hours cows stand in the Dutch meadows. This is done to calculate the subsidies for free-range cattle.
