Kindai Univ. Develops AI for Sorting Out Farmed Sea Bream

   Shirahama, Wakayama Pref., Feb. 7 (Jiji Press)--Kindai University has developed an artificial intelligence system that assists the work to sort out young red sea bream farmed by the university in western Japan.
   The system, fully introduced in December last year, automates part of the process that has been conventionally undertaken by veteran workers. It is utilized to streamline the work to eliminate undergrown fish before shipments to red sea bream farmers across Japan.
   The university, whose Faculty of Biology-Oriented Science and Technology is located in Wakayama Prefecture, developed the AI system jointly with Toyota Tsusho Corp. <8015> and Microsoft Japan Co.
   Young red sea bream farmed by the university are picked up from a preserve together with seawater and are placed on the conveyor belt for being sorted out by workers.
   The sorting-out work is prone to mistakes when the number of fish is large and becomes less efficient when the number is small.
