ATLANTA, August 22, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Animal analytics and technology services provider AGL Technology is working with IBM Watson IoT to help its customers in the Animal Health, Nutrition and Production industry maximize the potential of AI-powered IoT solutions.
The combination of AGL’s IoT/Cloud/Artificial Intelligence knowledge and industry expertise with IBM Watson IoT technologies will help customers improve animal care and productivity. IBM Watson IoT Platform Analytics Service and Blockchain Service will collect, analyze, track, learn and report AGL sensor data. IBM Maximo Production Quality Insights will drive acoustic and visual insights that help automate the application of AGL domain expertise.
“The Animal Health, Nutrition and Production space is ripe for cognitive solution innovation. The industry is driven by many factors, including rapidly growing global demand for animal protein, shortage of skilled farm labor, minimizing environmental footprints, reduction or elimination of antibiotics, and consumer awareness into animal production,” said Marcel Sarzen, President and CEO of AGL Technology. “Our knowledge and access in Animal Health, Nutrition and Production will enable us to rapidly innovate and, with IBM, deliver high value into this space.”
“IBM Watson IoT’s market-leading and AI-powered technologies enable organizations to collect and analyze operational data in real time to provide end-to-end visibility for the animal food production industry,” added Larry White, IBM Watson IoT Industry Sales Leader. “These advanced monitoring and health tracking solutions significantly improve quantitative and qualitative industry metrics, resulting in a higher level of animal care and productivity.”
AGL Technology uses sensors, edge processing, cloud computing and artificial intelligence to provide precision livestock farming and supply chain optimization for Animal Production Integrators and their ecosystem partners.
