An animal will not be able to steal food.
Volta, an Italian artificial intelligence company, has developed a smart bowl to prevent food thefts. The gadget called Mookkie is useful primarily for the owners of several pets, according to New Atlas, Chronicle.info reports with reference to the Correspondent.
The device is a removable cup with a magnetic mount, as well as a wide-angle camera facing forward. As long as the selected animal that owns the bowl is not there, the transparent polycarbonate lid blocks access to food.
However, when the desired animal approaches the device, the embedded microprocessor uses a deep neural network to confirm the animal’s “identity” using face recognition technology.
If he determines that this is the "right" dog or cat, the lid of the bowl temporarily moves away, allowing them to eat - this is not much different from the face unlock function, which is available on some smartphones.
Thus, the new gadget will not allow one animal to "steal" food from the bowl of another.
Using a smartphone application, pet owners can receive notifications that the animal has eaten, as well as notifications that the bowl is empty - Mookkie can see what is in the bowl and can determine that the food has disappeared.
As an added bonus, the device also received a built-in night light to help pets find their bowl in the dark.
