University of Calgary: Monitoring cattle in big herds with multiple sensors

Participant : René Quiniou.

The state of Alberta produces a significant part of the beef meat in Canada. Big farms feeds up around 40.000 bull calves in feedlots grouping 200-300 animals. Diseases such as Bovine Respiratory Diseases (BRD) are frequent and may propagate quickly in such conditions. So, it is important to detect as soon as possible when an animal is sick. We are collaborating with the Department of Production Animal Health, University of Calgary for designing monitoring systems able to generate early alarms when an animal is sick. Precisely, we are studying the properties of new sensors and their aptitude to provide relevant data for BRD detectors.

University of Potsdam: preferences in mining with ASP

Participant : Thomas Guyet.

The research group “knowledge processing and information systems" of the University of Potsdam, so called Potascco group, develops a collection of tools and programs for Answer Set Programming such as the clingo solver or the ASPRIN system, developed by J. Romero to handle preferences on ASP models. They have strong expertise in problem encoding with ASP. In addition to T. Schaub Inria position, we initiate some collaborations with other members of the Potascco group in order to strengthen our relationships.
