Top Picks of the Week - 23rd Feb

Here are our top picks of the week from the digital sphere. Enjoy!



1. Just 27 days to go: are you ready?

There are just 27 working days until UK companies employing at least 250 people are required to publish their gender pay gap. Over 1,000 firms have already published their figures - but there are still 8,000 more to come.
Do you still have to release your figures?
Are your systems up to the task?

2. AI does grunt work on China's pig farms

Artificial intelligence technology has been developed to help piglets survive their first months - and then to decide which sows to kill. The scheme is being rolled out in China, the world's biggest producer and consumer of pork. China's pig industry is notoriously inefficient, but one expert said the tech could also prove useful elsewhere.
The system is designed to maintain a profile of each animal, including details of their weight, age, food intake and exercise, among other details. Vision recognition software - which relies on a number tattooed onto each swine's side - is used to keep track of each pig.

3. Skiing robots hit the slopes in South Korea

All entrants were required to measure more than 50cm in height, stand on 'two legs', have joints resembling elbow and knees, an independent power system and use ski plates and poles. 8 teams, including universities, institutes and a private company all vied for the $10,000 prize.

4. The war against animal poaching will be won by data, not drones

The war against poaching is not going well. Every year, around 20,000 African elephants are killed for their ivory – a trade driven by strong demand in China and the Far East. Despite this, on average, an area the size of New York’s Central Park is patrolled by just two rangers with a single gun between them and a yearly budget of £15.
But there is hope that even if the poachers can’t be out-gunned, it might be possible to put them under pressure a different way. Cue SMART: Spatial Monitoring and Reporting Tool.
