Max Armstrong shares news of a new way facial recognition could be used on the farm

Max Armstrong offers a look at the spread of facial recognition which could be used in some interesting places. For example, there’s work in Scotland that animal behaviorists have teamed with engineers to “read” the faces of pigs to determine when they may be in distress. Max offers more information on the tool.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
