Meet Tudder The Tinder For Cows
Hectare Agritech, a farming startup based in the UK, has made their very own Tinder….and it’s for cows. Hectare has named their new Tinder style app Tudder, which is such an amazing name I can’t stand it. They say their goal is “reinventing farm trading – and making farmers’ lives easier”.
So how does Tudder work? Using profiles and data from 42,000 cattle farms in the UK, the app helps farmers find the perfect match for their cows.
Farmers can then swipe right on a cow or bull they are interested in. The app has garnered over 3 million euros from organizations and investors, and the famous tennis star Andy Murray is even listed among them.

Researchers used different keywords to link to certain diagnoses in order to have the AI system help detect diseases in children. The system did surprisingly well, and was able to diagnose a variety of diseases with 90% to 97% correctness.
