China’s Tech Firms Are Mapping Pig Faces - The New York Times
As a devastating disease afflicts the country’s swine, companies are scrambling to roll out facial and voice recognition and other unproven ways to save them...

“I like the idea, I like the concept, but I need to be shown that it works,” said Dirk Pfeiffer, a professor of veterinary epidemiology at the City University of Hong Kong. “Because if it doesn’t work, it’s counterproductive.”

Facial recognition won’t help unless China has a comprehensive database of pig faces to track their movement, he pointed out. Also, facial recognition doesn’t help “once the animal is in the slaughterhouse and they chop it into bits.”

Farmer Accuses Province of Dragging Feet on Swine Fever Outbreak - Caixin
The announcement comes after Hebei Dawu Agriculture and Livestock Group founder Sun Dawu took to Weibo Friday to accuse the government of staying silent on the recent deaths of 15,000 pigs on his Hebei farm, despite quickly making plans to cull his remaining pigs, which numbered nearly 6,000.

Sun’s post has been shared over 20,000 times on the Chinese social media platform. Sun, who has previously been outspoken on rural issues, gained prominence after his 2003 arrest for allegedly running an illegal credit cooperative sparked debate over financing for smaller businesses.

The outbreak confirmed by the Ministry of Agriculture — which didn’t say if the farm in question was Sun’s — is the first reported in Hebei province, which had officially been swine fever-free until Sunday.
