Artificial intelligence (AI) researchers at Norwegian telecommunications carrier Telenor's Norwegian Open AI Lab are testing AI models to reduce costs and increase efficiency in salmon breeding.

The models are engineered to optimize feeding, maintain the fish's health, and help companies improve farm operation decisions.

The Lab bases its projects on neural networks, with one application designed to help farm workers interpret salmon feeding patterns; the technology analyzes camera images to determine when behavior changes, and tests showed the method identified behavior with 80% accuracy.

Another application employs image recognition to recognize individual salmon and ensure they are not mistaken for each other, as a more-affordable alternative to tags or tattoos.
