Improve poultry welfare with 3D cameras, gene editing and AI

Date: 02 November 2021

Register to explore gene-editing technology as a potential solution to male chick culls.

Peter Ahrendt, Ph.D., CEO, Animoni ApS, will discuss a new solution for high-precision weighing of broilers that uses 3D camera technology to capture both the shape and volume of the birds and can record even in the dark with its internal IR light source. Yuval Cinnamon, Ph.D., principal investigator, Agricultural Research Organization, The Volcani Center - NRS Poultry Sustainability and Transformation, will talk about how genetic engineering technology generated a layer breed that produces only non-GMO layer hens hatch which lay the same table eggs as those currently produced by the industry "Male" eggs do not develop, saving 50% of incubation space and energy. Pedro Gómez, CEO, Orbem GmbH, will present on a combination of MRI and AI to help identify the eggs that will develop into healthy one-day-old chicks. 

This webinar will broadcast at: 10:00 AM CDT (Chicago) / 3:00 PM GMT (London) / 11:00 PM CST (Beijing).


  1. Learn how 3D camera technology can create weight predictions, abnormality alerts, and daily gain curves for poultry flocks. 
  2. Explore gene-editing technology as a potential solution to male chick culls. 
  3. Why advances in MRI and AI technology could help identify characteristic features of fertility, contamination, cracks in the shell, double yolks, and flipped eggs.

This is the first webinar of the '2021 Poultry Tech Summit Webinar Series: What’s coming next.'  During this seven-part webinar series industry experts will preview what’s coming next – from prospective solutions to developing technology – for the poultry industry. 

This webinar series is sponsored by: Arm & Hammer, Aviagen, Baader, Boehringer Ingelheim, Cargill, Ceva, Chore-Time, Cobb, Evonik, Marel, Staubli, and Zoetis.

Presented by WATT Poultry and WATT Global Media.
