AI-powered app lets farmers chat with their cows

Gorkha Post



The free AI-powered app, which launched Wednesday will allow farmers to “communicate” with their cattle using only a smartphone.

The app, which is powered by Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence(AI), works across all platforms and all manner of smartphones, from the earliest generation to the latest, on desktop and laptop to afford users the most flexibility possible, RT reported.’s main goal is sharing best agricultural practices around the world to improve dairy production and, as a direct consequence, the lives of farmers in some of the poorest countries in the world.

AI-powered bots assess the animals’ condition based on a number of inputs, and interact with farmers, reminding them about vaccination and feeding times, and gestation periods, in addition to providing additional tips and information to improve the overall health of the herd.

The app, for now, operates via text input only, but an update due later this year will allow for voice commands, effectively allowing farmers to engage with their herds like never before.

Questions can include: “How are you feeling?” or “are you hungry?” and “when was your last vaccination?”, reports El Argentino.

“It is the next step in technological evolution,” the application’s founder and creator, Eddie Rodríguez Von Der Becke, said, as cited by Cadena 3.

In the initial testing phase of the app, farmers around the world reported up to a three-fold increase in daily milk production.

“With the help of Microsoft, we came up with the idea to create one artificial intelligence that analyzes human language and connect it with another that analyzes animal behaviour,” he added.

“Over half the world’s population does not yet have access to the internet, which means connectivity is a global challenge that requires a creative solution,” Peggy Johnson, executive vice president of business development at Microsoft, said in a statement.

“By using today’s technology and working with local business-owners that best understand the needs of their communities, our hope is to create sustainable solutions that will last for years to come,” she added.

Google changes YouTube revenue rule

Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — Google is making the biggest changes ever to the advertising rules on the most popular video platform, YouTube, since the video site’s inception, an attempt to clean up its content and answer persistent complaints from advertisers.

The world’s largest video platform will kick thousands of people out of its ad revenue-sharing program, and will make it much harder for new ones to get into the program. The change is among one of YouTube’s responses to a year of criticism it has generated for a series of scandals involving questionable and offensive content that has appeared on the site.

YouTube will now impose stricter rule for video types that can earn money on the site and will introduce a new vetting process for the top-shelf videos it offers advertisers, the company said Tuesday in a statement.

YouTube’s new rules require anyone who wants to generate revenue on the platform to first generate 4,000 hours of ‘watchtime’ over a 12-month period, and to attract at least 1,000 subscribers.

That replaces a lower hurdle of 10,000 lifetime views, which the site instituted last spring, after a first wave of negative stories about rogue content.

YouTube, in a blog post, says the new rules will affect ‘a significant’ number of its user-created channels, but won’t provide an official tally.
