An innovative veterinary research and development company is set to revolutionise the UK and global pet market by filing for a patent for its ground-breaking artificial intelligence (AI) technology.
Vet-AI is a Leeds-based business and is leading the way in bringing AI to the global pet market, which is worth around £100 billion.
It was founded in early 2017 by tech expert Paul Hallett and an experienced veterinarian Robert Dawson. Vet-AI is an R&D company which is looking to develop a number of solutions that focuses on supporting pets, vets and providing pet owners with the necessary tools to access more affordable care conveniently when their pets need it the most. The company’s flagship brand Joii is set to launch in April 2019.
Trevor Hardcastle, the Chief Data Scientist at Vet-AI and a renowned physicist said:
“This technology allows us to learn the statistical patterns present in our data to discover preventative healthcare intervention strategies for the benefit of our beloved pets. It’s very exciting to collaborate with veterinarians and expert data scientists to develop new groundbreaking technologies with the ultimate goal of improving animal welfare.”
Vet-AI has a clear focus on bringing revolutionary innovation to the industry with the support of vets. The company is going through a number of lengths to ensure that their vision is scientifically validated by involving some of the world’s biggest animal health pharmaceutical companies, leading universities and RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons).
The Co-founder, Robert Dawson Commented:
“Sadly there is a real problem with vets leaving the profession, a lot of which is down to the difficulty of maintaining a work/life balance within traditional practices, particularly for those with young families. We are building technologies that will offer an alternative way of working with complete flexibility. By doing so we believe we will help keep some amazing vets working within this great profession and give them new ways to connect and engage with pets and pet parents.”
Co-founder Paul Hallett added:
“In the coming years new insights will be discovered from our technology that will lead to better treatments and stronger relationships between vets, pets and pet parents.”
In the future, the company is planning on partnering with charities, with animal welfare at the forefront of Vet-AI.
