MSc Topic: "Disease detection using animal behaviour."
Disease detection can be difficult at the best of times for animals, but gets even more complex when attempted in a commercial environment. My research attempts to detect cattle disease from data automatically recorded at the cattle milking sessions. My research differs from other methods attempted in the past by using data that attempts to include changes in the cattle dominance hierarchy, to augment the data gained to further improve detection.
