Beijing Engineer Has Created The World's First AI Cat Shelter That Will Identify, Feed, And Warm Stray Cats
Here is the story you need today. Wan Xi, a computer engineer, from Beijing is the hero we all need. After being concerned about the city's ever-growing stray animal population, Wan Xi decided to do something about it. Something brilliant. Read the full story at Daily Mail!
Shelter, Food, and Fighting Diseases
Wan Xi told China Morning Daily, 'At first, I just wanted to provide them with a warm place in winter with food and water that is not frozen.' But then his vision soon evolved when he realized just what this innovative shelter could be capable of.
The makeshift refuge provides felines with food and water, plus a temperature-controlled environment which keeps the mercury at 27°C. Not only that, through the use of a smart camera, it also identifies 174 different types of cats and will flag any who are detected with a disease. If a cat is flagged, fortunately, the shelter is manned by a team of volunteers who are then alerted and help get the cats proper care.
Not all heroes wear capes
Thank you Wan Xi for this incredible and thoughtful invention!
