Huawei has reportedly shifted its attention to how artificial intelligence can help pig farmers as a new use for its tech, following a drop of its smartphone sales fall amid US sanctions.
After the Trump administration labelled it a threat to US national security in May, the Chinese telecoms giant was prevented from accessing critical components.
Hence, the Chinese smartphone maker is outsourcing its technology to pig farmers and the coal mining industry in efforts to recover from the US ban that has had a robust impact on its revenue.
Huawei is also collaborating with the coal mining industry in combination with Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology for pig farmers.
It is worthwhile to note that China has the world’s biggest pig farming industry. With the help of AI technology, farmers will be able to detect diseases, track pig’s health.
Also, with the use of facial recognition technology, farmers can identify individual pigs, while other technology monitors their weight, diet, and exercise.
