Facial recognition is helping improve everything from gaming to fighting crime – and now it could help in the battle against cat obesity.
A new gadget that uses ‘cutting-edge cat facial recognition technology’ promises to monitor our feline friends’ appetites and alert owners to any problems.
The Bistro system, created by Taiwanese company 42Ark, uses a camera at the front of a feeder to identify each of the cats.
There is more here, along with obligatory cat photo, with the cat’s face being scanned by facial recognition technology. For the pointer I thank Mark Thorson.
