Most people who own cats don't really need excuses to take photos of their adorably furry felines, but a high-tech new feline app called 'Tably' is providing an important additional motivating factor for cat photos by promising the ability to assess cats' wellness and comfort levels.
Developed by a Canadian animal health tech firm called Sylvester.ai, the 'Tably' app uses photos of your cat to analyze things like its whisker movements, muzzle tension, the narrowing or widening of eyes, head posture and ear position to pinpoint signs of discomfort or distress. The 'Tably' app leverages the wonders of AI and machine learning to detect facial expression patterns and convey possible areas of concern to cat owners.
By combining AI and app technologies with widely accepted evidence that facial cues can be signals of discomfort and pain in cats, the 'Tably' feline app offers a reliable and convenient way for cat-owners to proactively stay on top of their pets' wellness.
