Computer programme can detect whether farm animals and pets are in pain

“The artificially intelligent system has been designed to recognise five different facial expressions in sheep and estimate whether the animal is suffering and how severe is the discomfort.

It is hoped cameras could be mounted on water troughs to monitor animals when they approach and issue a warning to the farmer if the sheep appears distressed, so that diseases in the flock can be picked up early. “
