DEVELOPS INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS FOR PERFORMANCE HORSES WHOSE MAIN GOAL IS TO IMPROVE THEIR HEALTH AND SAFETY

Ossicles Technologies develops innovative products for performance horses whose main goal is to improve their health and safety.

Our first product, the eQuiet, is an IoT digital earplug that controls the sound environment, records and displays biometric and geospatial data on a portable device. This data is analyzed by ML/Ai to predict potential health problems that the horse may encounter.

Advances in Ai/ML allow us today to analyze in real-time the data collected by the device and detect abnormalities before the first symptoms appear.

“The device literally learns, throughout its use, the health of the horse: its heart rate, the oxygen level in the blood, its blood pressure, its breathing rate and the body temperature. When eQuiet detects abnormal variation, it sends an alert to the user.“

To analyze data using artificial intelligence, in January 2019 we integrated the first Montreal cohort of the Next AI incubator.

By driving the machine with data from the scientific literature and others recorded by the device, “you can already detect anomalies,” says Abdhallah Bari, who has since been hired as the start-up’s scientific director. The latter now seeks to ensure that the data is processed in real-time in the same cap and sends it into the cloud, in order to analyze the information.

For Ossicles and its partners, the contribution of new hearing technologies as well as AI/ML is an essential and invaluable asset for the control, maintenance and improvement of the health and performance of racehorses and show horses. We are working with audiologists, the CRITIAS research chair and The Montreal University Veterinary faculty. We are excited about the multitude of opportunities that horse-designed intra-ear devices can offer to help surveillance efforts and better understand the health, stress control and safety of horses.
