AI can help us make sheep suffer less
Scientists at Cambridge created a way to detect sheep’s suffering using AI. The researchers built a machine learning algorithm based on the Sheep Pain Facial Expression Scale— a tool gauging a sheep’s pain depending on its facial movements. The system achieved an accuracy of 80 percent at spotting pain.
