CattleEye was founded in Jan 2019 by Terry Canning the son of a dairy farmer from Co Armagh Northern Ireland and Adam Askew a senior architect with over 10 years experience using image analytics powered by deep learning for the detection of cancerous tumours.
Terry had successfully exited his previous company FarmWizard when he started looking at technologies that could deliver his vision of a completely hardware free method of monitoring dairy cows. He was introduced to Adam Askew through a mutual friend and together with help from Adam’s colleague David McCleary they developed a proof of concept demonstrator.
Terry worked with Jayne to form a business model, strategy and an investment approach which with the help of the proof of concept demonstrator led to the raising of $1m pre seed investment. Adam was then joined by five of his former data science and development team. Adam and his team bring a combined experience of 40 years plus in healthcare image analytics powered by deep learning and today they are working hard building products that put very latest in AI powered video analytics into the hands of livestock farmers.
To provide the next generation of ruminant livestock monitoring solutions improving the lives of farmers and their livestock. We plan to bring to market the first autonomous livestock monitoring system for ruminant livestock based on video analytics powered by deep learning Artificial Intelligence.
The CattleEye team comprise of some seriously clever animal welfare experts, data scientists and application developers. We try to best harness those skills by providing a fun, agile team working environment making sure to leave room for a work life balance. We make sure all our team have regular farm visits to ensure they understand how real dairy farmers operate.
