Tyson Foods will use computer vision to track chicken moving through its plants as part of a plan to invest more in automation and artificial intelligence in order to cut costs and reduce waste.

By the end of this year, the company expects to have cameras, machine learning algorithms, and edge computing up and monitoring the processing of hundreds of thousands of pounds of packaged chicken a week in seven of its processing facilities.

The technology will allow Tyson to gain more control over its inventory and manage the freshness of its chicken.

Said Tyson’s Lee Slezak, “We’re trying to apply technology everywhere we can as a company to drive down costs and drive up efficiency and business value.”
