AI Use Case

Identify creature characteristics to assist in disease control

Sorting insects by sex enables aggressive intervention (e.g. sterilisation or culling) to minimise their ability to procreate and therefore spread disease. Machine vision enables this to happen at greater scale and pace therefore enabling more significant interventions. This also has research benefits.
